We're looking for a T-I-M-O-THY!!!

PBGS is performing Salad Days at the Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin during the week of the 7th October and we have not yet cast the male lead role of Timothy. So as well as "Looking for a p-i-a-n-o" we are looking for a Timothy!

Salad Days is set in the 1950's and posh BBC english is a must! It's all about a couple who leave university and are pressured into marriage (Jane) and work (Tim). They decide the best thing to do to keep their parents off their backs is to marry each other (even though they are not in love) and look after a tramp's piano for £7 a week as work. They then discover that the piano makes everyone dance when it is played and they become notorious through London, being chased by the Police and the Minister of Pleasure and Pastimes who wants to stop everyone enjoying themselves. There are lots of cameos, comedic scenes, silly songs and lively dancing thoughout the show.

Timothy has just left university and should be a stage age between 20 - 30! He has a lot of dialogue, some songs of a baritone range (although no solos) and a bit of movement/dancing although there is no need for them to be trained. Could suit someone seeking to develop their performances beyond smaller, supporting roles as Timothy is on stage for about 75% of the show.

If you are interested or can think of anyone that would be suitable to perform in our show, please contact our Secretary Paula Fraser on 07956 678720 or email


Wolverton G&S: Follow That Girl

Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society are presenting Follow That Girl from the 4th - 6th July at the Creed Street Theatre, Wolverton. As always, several PBGS members are involved and this is a great chance to see another show by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds, who wrote our current PBGS show, Salad Days. From the Wolverton Website:
'Follow That Girl is a musical adapted by Julian Slade and Dorothy Reynolds (who also wrote Salad Days and Hooray for Daisy.) from their original Bristol Old Vic production Christmas in King Street.

The story centers on a girl named Victoria Gilchrist, whose parents want her to marry one of two businessmen. She objects and runs away. Her capture after a long chase by a policeman, Tom, leads to romance and finally marriage to him.'
