A Message from our Presidents

A lovely message to all of us from our Presidents Elected:
To Putt,

We’d just like to add our congratulations and thanks to you all for entertaining us so well on Friday and Saturday. It was a joy to be in the audience and, as Alistair said, “I haven’t seen so much movement in Pinafore”. You all seemed to be having a wonderful time too – and in our book, that’s what makes it all so well worthwhile (and the hard work of its organisation and money raising!).

Thank you to all those ladies who helped with costumes too. It was greatly appreciated.

No doubt we’ll see you next at Harrogate and we look forward to that very much.

Sincerely yours,

Anne & Tony Critchley
Our thanks also go to Anne and Tony whose sterling support for PBGS is invaluable!

Thank you to our audiences!

A big thank you to all who joined us onboard HMS Pinafore this week. Your support and appreciation has meant that we have had a fantastic time! Pinafore may have docked, but there is still plenty going on:

We are off to Harrogate on the 22nd August 2015 when we will be performing our production of Trial by Jury at Harrogate Theatre as part of the Fringe event for the International Festival of Gilbert and Sullivan. We will be forming a unique partnership with Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year, and who will be taking their production of The Zoo to perform on the same afternoon. Any Gilbert and Sullivan lovers who would like to attend the Festival and cheer us on will find more information at www.gsfestivals.org.

Our next local production will be an autumn concert at the Queen Mother Theatre where we will present The Best of All Musical Worlds from 9th - 10th October 2015. Watch this space for more details! And in Spring 2016 we will be back with Gilbert and Sullivan's battle of the sexes in a production of Princess Ida.

HMS Pinafore sets sail!

Now give three cheers, we'll lead the way - Hoorah, Hoorah, Hooray! Our sparkling production of HMS Pinafore opens Wednesday at the Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin. We are now under full sail on the 'ocean blue', bringing you the full G&S mix of romance triumphant against unlikely odds, surprising secrets, mistaken identity, mixed up babies and quality singing!

Pinafore runs from Wednesday to Saturday with a Saturday Matinee. Tickets available from the Queen Mother Theatre. Book now to avoid disappointment as our shows are always popular!
