Host our Gaslamp Players for your Next Event

Widely admired and much in demand, the Gaslamp Players present historic vignettes based upon the early history of what was then known as San Diego’s “New Town.”  These costumed performers portray some of San Diego’s most interesting historical characters – from Alonzo Horton “Father of New San Diego,” to Chief of Police Keno Wilson, to Ida Bailey, the popular madame who ran the high-class brothel, Canary Cottage.

The Players make presentations to groups throughout the city.  Your group will enjoy a fun-filled history lesson while being engaged in an entertaining performance by our Players.  Enliven a luncheon, party, or event by booking the Gaslamp Players.

Bookings are made through Charlotte Perry at (858) 454-7798.

The fee for the performance varies depending on the audience venue.
