An ensemble musical comedy, The Yeomen of the Guard, is coming to UWA’s Dolphin Theatre for a gripping season from October 24. Presented by The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of WA, the production promises blind passion and relentless intrigue set in the Tower of London.

Set in ye olde merrie England, the rambunctious show follows a host of tragicomic characters with witty song for each occasion. Blindfolded heroines, dashing heroes, indomitable dames, and pedantic gaolers will crowd the stage.

 

Making his debut as a director, Michael Brett, who has been musical director of many of the Society’s recent productions, said that The Yeomen of the Guard was the most surprising in the G&S repertoire of 14 shows.

“Gilbert and Sullivan went all out with this one,” he said. “There is still the trademark hilarious comedy and crazy characters but a deepening of the music and exploration of the human heart – and with the most fabulous moustaches in the business.”

From the team that has brought you The Mikado, HMS Pinafore and The Gondoliers, this new G&S WA production features elaborate period costumes in a lush setting. With a cast of twenty-five and a live orchestra, under the musical direction of Georg Corall, the musical comedy is a ‘must see’ to witness theatricality folly at its best.

Tickets are limited for the nine-performance season. Get yours HERE
