Starlight Theatre’s Legend of the Red Box

In 1949, during the production of Naughty Marietta, the RED BOX even got billing. The entry read, “Good Luck from…THE RED BOX.” There has never been a single production whether at the Starlight Bowl, Civic Theatre, Spreckels or Lyceum Theatres where THE RED BOX was not on stage and in full view of the audience. In 1982, after a great deal of wear and tear, the original cardboard box was mounted onto a permanent wooden box so it could appear indefinitely in every production. No subsequent producer has wanted to tempt fate and leave THE RED BOX off the stage. It will be on stage casting its magical spell tonight. Can you find it in our third production of the 55th Season? One thing is certain – for good luck, THE RED BOX will appear.
