Sorcerer Launch Night!

The Launch Night for our next production will be on Tuesday 16th May at 8pm at Harlington Methodist Church Hall and we really hope you'll join us there to hear more about Gilbert & Sullivan's The Sorcerer! We will also be serving some light refreshments, very appropriate for a show that actually has a song listing everything that makes a perfect high tea.

We always welcome new members so please feel free to turn up and introduce yourself when you arrive. If you are not a singer but would still love to join in we'd be equally thrilled, you have no idea how much work happens before show week and behind the scenes off-stage to make a successful production!

We look forward to seeing you all and sprinkling some Sorcerer magic.

Thank you to everyone!

What a week! We were a sell out so a big thanks to all our audiences - your clear enjoyment and enthusiasm for our 1940s Pinafore has meant so much to us. The response to this show has been amazing and we really appreciate your support! It takes a lot of hard work and a lot of people, on stage and behind the scenes, to put on a Show like this. There are far too many of you to name (it would be a very long list) but you know who you all are. You have made this Show such a success! Bouquets to you all and here's to the next one!

Some more rehearsal photos!

Pinafore rehearsals are really coming along as you can see from these photos! We are hugely enjoying this WW2 set production where every member of the chorus is a real character on board the training ship HMS Pinafore. We have sailors and WRENs, the ship's cook, engineers, the ship's nurse, deck scrubbers, a war artist and many more for you to spot, all going about their duties!

With the usual Gilbertian twists and turns (and a few of our own) and Sullivan's fabulous stirring music this is going to be a special production. Buy your tickets from the Queen Mother Theatre Box Office here.

"Gilbert & Sullivan’s classic tale of forbidden love and long-kept secrets is transported to the bravery and glamour of the 1940s, with sailors and WRENS aboard WWII training ship HMS Pinafore.
Naval trainee Ralph Rackstraw is in love with his captain’s daughter Josephine. But she is being pursued by First Lord of the Admiralty Sir Joseph Porter who has accompanied his relatives, singing sensations ‘The Porter Sisters', onboard to boost the troops’ morale. Meanwhile the Captain comes to realise what it is to love across class boundaries as he finds himself attracted to local spiv Buttercup.
Will true love prevail? Will jealous Deb Deadeye tear the couples apart? And is the ship’s cat really to blame for the racket during the blackout?"

Box Office now open for HMS Pinafore

Our Box Office is open and you can now buy your tickets for our wonderful 1940s production of Gilbert and Sullivan's HMS Pinafore wherever you see this button:

With Sailors and Wrens aboard the 1941 Naval Training Ship HMS Pinafore, the scene is set for the usual Gilbertian topsy turvy plot twists and much more besides. All our chorus are characters in this very funny production and, of course, there is Sullivan's wonderful music. We set sail on the 12th of April, with a matinee on the Saturday, and we look forward to seeing you aboard! As a taster here are some photos from our recent rehearsals:
