It seems like Lisa Lacy and Charles Cooper of Images Theater Company are making a venue tour of Sacramento. After working at Benvenuti Performing Arts Center in Natomas, Magic Circle Theater in Roseville, and Chautauqua Playhouse in Carmichael, among others, the pair will bring their new musical “Legacy” to the Guild Theatre in Oak Park on Jan. 18.
Lacy, who writes and directs, and musical director Cooper, who writes the songs, have created the new work to acknowledge and celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It’s a subject the pair know well from their work on the California Musical Theatre-sponsored “Keeping the Dream Alive” in 2003 and “And the Dream Goes On” in 2004. The two also wrote the musicals “Evangalize,” “Everyday People, A Musical Revue” and “Wings of Freedom” together.
The “Legacy” production, which features Bill Miller, Sara Von Davenport, Derrick Miller and Michael Turner, is a fundraiser for ITC. It will play four times at the Guild Theater, 2828 35th St. (35th and Broadway).
The 8 p.m. Jan. 18 performance will be preceded by a 6 p.m. reception. The $50 ticket for the event includes hors d’oeuvres, music by the Charles Cooper and the Images Band, a show souvenir and VIP seating.
The other shows are 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Jan. 19, and 3 p.m. Jan. 20. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $18 for seniors (65 and older) and $15 for children (12 and younger). Tickets are available at ITC (www.imagestheater.org), at Underground Books (2814 35th St.) or at The Culture Collection (6391 Riverside Blvd.) For more information: www. imagestheater.org or (916) 428-1441 for reservations.
