Visually and musically exhilarating

Sheer Fun from start to finish

Iolanthe - Monday

Iolanthe is the seventh operetta and is a topsy-turvy love story involving fairies and members of the House of Lords - a political fairy tale that only Gilbert & Sullivan could conceive and containing some of their most famous music including The March of the Peers and Private Willis’s When All night Long. Gilbert at his satirical best and not to be missed!!

Trial by Jury - Tuesday

This delightful one act piece is performed as a curtain raiser to The Sorcerer and is set in the Courts of Justice where the Plaintiff is suing the dastardly Edwin for ‘breach of promise’. Complete with beautiful bridesmaids, a Jury or twelve good men and true and a truly inventive Judge, this rarely performed work is the perfect start to an evening of Gilbert & Sullivan.

The Sorcerer  - Tuesday

Director John Savournin sets this brand new production of The Sorcerer in Ploverleigh’s village hall, where the somewhat eccentric local community is preparing to celebrate the union of Alexis and Aline. Alexis, hellbent on spreading love throughout the village, employs the assistance of a family Sorcerer (come-travelling-salesman) to distribute his “Patent, Oxy-Hydrogen Love-at-first-sight” potion to each and every member of this happy little community, by putting it in their tea... As things don’t go to plan, this has far-reaching consequences that are by turn uproariously hilarious and fantastically farcical.

The Pirates of Penzance - Wednesday

This wonderfully jolly romp, complete with a brave(ish) band of swashbuckling pirates, a completely dotty Major-general, his beautiful daughters and a bumbling bunch of hopeless but hilarious policemen British policemen has all the elements for a delightfully entertaining and traditional production.
