Booking for Harrogate

Harrogate Theatre
Time to book your tickets to see us perform our fabulous fairy tale version of Trial by Jury on the 22nd August 2015 at 2.30pm at Harrogate Theatre. We will be taking our production up north as part of the Fringe event for the International Festival of Gilbert and Sullivan. And, in a double bill, Wolverton G&S will be joining us and taking their modern day version of The Zoo as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations.

Alison Gibbs's Noda Award Nominated production of Trial was a huge success when we performed it at the Queen Mother Theatre in Hitchin in 2013, and we are thrilled to be performing it again in such a beautiful venue as part of an international event. If you would like to be there to support us, tickets are already going fast. They can be booked Via the Harrogate Theatre Website:

We would love to see our friends there to cheer us on!

HMS Pinafore Review

Many thanks to Nova Horley of Noda for her review of our June production of HMs Pinafore:
"PBGS really does G&S well – we had a super set and great costumes, with some interesting direction from new Director Amanda Sayers."
"The costumes were colourful, I loved the ladies red and blue dresses – very fetching, and also the turquoise that Hebe and Jebe wore. As always with PBGS they looked fresh and managed to suit everyone."
"The two stand out characters for me were Graham Breeze as Captain Corcoran and Paula Fraser as Josephine – they both gave their parts energy and expression along with a real understanding of the meaning of the words, both sung and spoken, combined with humour and angst where relevant. Well done to you both."

Trial by Jury at Harrogate

Remember Trial By Jury? Hopefully you do, because it's time for us to dust off our fairytale characters as we start (resume?) rehearsals this coming Sunday for our performance at the Harrogate International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival. We will be taking the stage on the afternoon of 22th August as part of the Festival Fringe.

Our ranks will be swelled by members of Wolverton G&S who we look forward to welcoming into the fold! We are forming a unique partnership with Wolverton, who are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year by taking their production of The Zoo to perform on the same afternoon. In a unique opportunity, performers are able to perform in both productions.

Reahearsals start at 3pm on Sunday 12th July at Streatley Village Hall.
