The Yeomen of the Guard brings Gilbert & Sullivan alive

The Yeomen of the Guard brings Gilbert & Sullivan alive

JOIN The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of WA for a rousing occasion of passion, intrigue, and fabulous moustaches with its latest production The Yeomen of the Guard.

Set in ye olde merrie England but about as Shakespearean as Errol Flynn in tights, there is never a dull moment around the Tower of London in this madcap musical.

Blindfolded heroines, dashing heroes, indomitable dames and pedantic gaolers with a penchant for thumbscrew torture compete with each other to steal the show and your affections.

With mistaken identity, fake marriages and overdue beheadings, The Yeomen of the Guard is just the merry romp to get you out of the house and into doublet and hose.

Hard on the heels of the sold-out season of The Mikado earlier this year, this new production of The Yeomen of the Guard is musical director Michael Brett’s debut as a director.

Michael, along with the cast of 25, a live orchestra under the baton of Georg Corall and all those behind the scenes have been working hard and having a blast to rehearse and prepare this fantastic production.

Michael Brett.

The Yeomen of the Guard will run from Thursday, October 24, to Saturday, November 2, at UWA’s Dolphin Theatre.

Get in quick to book tickets to this nine-performance season as the last season sold out before it even opened.

Bookings can be made anytime at www.ticketswa.com/event/yeomen-guard with no online booking charges, or call 6488 2440 between 12pm – 4pm, Monday to Friday.

The society greatly appreciates your support for the wonderful performers who are the heart and soul of every production.

Founded in 1951, The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of WA has produced more than 100 productions of Gilbert and Sullivan’s extraordinary contribution to musical theatre.

Through the City of Stirling council, the Gilbert and Sullivan Society has a great home at the Nollamara Recreation Centre, serving as a social meeting point, rehearsal rooms for the society’s annual productions, music library and wardrobe and costume hire for a vast array of production costumes.

The hall is also home to the society’s permanent choir, The Savoy Opera Chorale.

The society welcomes new members whether you love singing, performing or being behind the scenes, or out in the audience, and is excited to gear up for its 70th anniversary in 2021.
