The Box Office is now open for our next production of The Grand Duke and tickets are already selling! This is a chance to see a real G&S rarity with a hilarious production from our Gondoliers director, Graham Breeze.
In the nation of Pfennig-Halbpfennig, the citizens are well and truly fed up with their ruler, the Grand Duke. A local theatrical company led by Ernest Dummkopf is involved in secret plans for a coup, but all are thrown into disarray when leading actor Ludwig inadvertently spills the beans to the Grand Duke’s detective. Chaos ensues when people try to save the day through a series of non-violent statutory duels with playing cards, where the loser legally ‘dies’ – starting a chain of 4 weddings and at least 2 ‘funerals’, together with political scheming. Into all this confusion come the Prince and Princess of Monte-Carlo with their newly-invented game of roulette… Will it be a happy ending? All bets are off!
