GILBERT and Sullivan wrote shows that were witty and fun and remain much-loved today.
Join Huddersfield Gilbert and Sullivan Society and you’ll see why these shows continue to delight. They are clever, entertaining and still have plenty to say. And companies have a great time putting them on.
The Huddersfield society is no exception. It has been staging the shows since the early Sixties and in recent years has made the Lawrence Batley Theatre its G and S performance home. The society also stages concerts at a variety of venues but its efforts are currently focused on May with a double bill due on stage at the LBT.
HMS Pinafore will sail on to the theatre’s main stage followed by Trial By Jury. The show’s MD is Simon Ackroyd and its producer is Graham Weston. Performances run May 13-17 and you could be on stage with them.
As ever, the company has a powerful line up of principals but struggles with the same problem facing many amateur societies - a shortage of men.
If you sing - and there are many good voices in Huddersfield - why not give G and S a try?
You’d receive a warm welcome at the weekly rehearsals, held on Wednesdays at 7.45pm at Waverley House, Waverley Road which is just off New North Road in Huddersfield. What’s more, you are guaranteed to have fun.
