Pinafore has launched!

Our next show is Gilbert and Sullivan's HMS Pinafore, sailing the ocean blue 12th-15th April 2023! Our production is set on a training ship during WW2 and includes Wrens and a few surprises! So plenty for women to sing as well as men.

We are always looking for new members so if you want to join us on board you will be very welcome. Come along to our rehearsals on Tuesday nights and introduce yourself! We rehearse from 7.45pm-10pm at Streatley Village Hall, Sharpenhoe Road, LU3 3PS, a few miles north of Luton. It is just off the A6 and very easy to get to. We would love you to join us onstage or helping backstage. You will find full contact details and a map here.

Thank you!

A BIG, heartfelt thank you to our 'Yeomen of the Guard' audiences this week. It was wonderful to be back in a theatre, to receive so much support and to hear all your laughter, applause and wonderful comments! We've enjoyed every minute of presenting this show to you. A huge amount of behind the scenes work has gone into this production, not least by our Producer Alison Gibbs and our Musical Director Jane Stott. But there are many, many others. You know who you all are and we are deeply grateful. The proof of all that effort really was in an especially fine pudding! Well done to all.

Our next show will be Gilbert and Sullivan's 'HMS Pinafore' in the Spring. Watch this space for more details which will be coming soon!

PBGS Yeomen Photoshoot

We have lots of lovely photos to show you from our photo shoot at St Mary's Pirton on Saturday. Luckily a bit of rain held off just long enough for us enact some scenes from our coming production of The Yeomen of the Guard, and to show off some of the wonderful costumes we have sourced for the show!

Yeomen runs from the 12th -15th October with a Saturday Matinee and you can order your tickets online from the Queen Mother Theatre by clicking anywhere you see this button:

Booking for Yeomen now open!

The Box Office is now open for our production of The Yeomen of the Guard!  

Set in the Tower of London. Colonel Fairfax, a gentleman, soldier and scientist is wrongly accused of sorcery, imprisoned in the Tower and sentenced to be beheaded within the hour.

To avoid leaving his estate to his accuser he secretly marries strolling gypsy, Elsie Maynard.

Jester Jack Point is also in love with Elsie but agrees to the marriage knowing that Fairfax will soon be executed. However, Fairfax escapes, throwing the Tower into confusion and setting in motion a number of intriguing plot twists ending in tragedy for one of the players.

The Yeomen of the Guard is deeper and darker than the usual comic Gilbert & Sullivan operas and is perhaps the most emotionally engaging with many considering the score to be Sullivan’s finest.

Thank you to all our lovely audiences for supporting us at our Gala Showcase in Pirton! It was great to be finally back onstage revisiting some of the highlights of our 50 years of performing for you.

Part of our 50th Anniversary plans was to present Gilbert and Sullivan's master work, The Yeomen of the Guard. Well, we've finally got there for our 51st year! It's now planned for October 2022 back in our usual home of the Queen Mother Theatre, Hitchin. Watch this space for full booking details! We have a great team with Alison Gibbs as our producer (our 'fairytale' Trial by Jury, Mikado, Iolanthe along with several more superb productions) and Jane Stott as our MD (The Merry Widow, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum). We are looking forward to all working together again on one of G&S's most operatic works. With all the usual comedy, misunderstandings and wonderful music, Yeomen is also a deeper work with real characters, broken hearts and betrayals. Is there a happy ending? Well, you'll have to join us and see!
