StageLight and Magic Inc. - Milestones

StageLightandMagic Inc. was officially formed a few weeks after our maiden production; "The Legend of Macbeth" in may 1996. Since then we have produced a number of plays and have helped to improve the standard of English theatre in Sri Lanka. Here is a glimps of some significant moments in our past......

whether they come to power through revolution or by a democratic process,
turn their back on their ideals and eventually on the people they promise

that they would become part of the greatest love story written in
the English language.....

2005 June - Elizabeth - Almost by chance a woman

Dario Fo’s plays are known for their almost absurd comic element as
well as their biting satire. Although the only biting that happens in any
of Stagefright&Panic performances is when the food is served, this is
not a play or a story that is to be taken lightly....

2005 September - Oleanna

A table, two chairs, a small stage, two actors locked in a power struggle,
accusations, indictments, destroyed futures. StageLight&Magic Inc.’s
newest production of David Mamet’s Oleanna,was an evening of riveting
theatre......
