Patience 'flippin' fabulous'!
Our run of Gilbert and Sullivan's Patience ended last night and we all had such a fantastic time I think every one of us was sorry to say goodbye to our lovesick maidens and heavy dragoons!
It was wonderful to hear all our audiences laughing and enjoying themselves so much throughout the week - it was a real boost, especially as our Friday and Saturday nights sold out. The QMT Theatre Management made sterling efforts to put in extra seating to accommodate the queues! Thank you to everyone who made the trip to Hitchin to support us. We are really look forward to presenting our next Show to you in October 2012. Moving away temporarily from G&S we will be performing Jack the Ripper: The Musical, under the able direction of Paula Fraser who gave us the wonderful G&S Sketch Show last year.
There is already a lot of anticipation for this show, set in a Victorian Music Hall and on the streets of London. If you would like to be involved (especially men!!!) then please contact us. Rehearsals start on May 15th at Streatley Village Hall, Beds, and this would be a very good time to join PBGS. New non-performing members are also very welcome as there is always a lot of essential work to do behind the scenes. The people you see prancing about on the stage are only part of the effort that goes into every production!
If you are already missing your G&S, we have a fantastic triple bill of shorts coming up in Spring 2013 - Gilbert & Sullivan's Trial By Jury, Gilbert & Burnand's Cox and Box, and Sullivan & Stephenson's The Zoo. All equally funny and all in the spirit of classic G&S.
We look forward to seeing you all again at the Queen Mother Theatre!
