A lovely message about Pirates from our Presidents, Anne and Tony:
To All In PBGS,
We’re sorry to be so late in sending our congratulations to everyone concerned with “The Pirates of Penzance”, owing to our attending an assortment of shows and having our carpets replaced – not to mention Easter too!!
We did enjoy the show very much and people commented that after initial doubts they enjoyed it too. Another couple preferred it to watching the TV!! - which we should take as another compliment. Finally a couple who have recently moved into the area think they will become Patrons after seeing only two shows! All very positive and rewarding in the numbers that attended and the cheerful expressions we noted at the time. A very lively, happy show full of enthusiasm and, as always, the diction in both the speech and singing was good and clearly delivered. Very well done, everybody! Thank you for entertaining us so royally!
Anne & Tony Critchley

    Felici - The Marriage of Figaro

    Felici is presenting Mozart's 'Marriage of Figaro' in support of the National Kidney Federation. There will be train rides, a raffle, croquet, some veggie samosas and lots of prosecco on sale as well as a stall selling handmade silver jewellery. It will be a bit like Glyndebourne and everyone is welcome to bring picnics and generally have a jolly time! Previous PBGS members who are in the production include Ali Gibbs as Marcellina, Gordon as Basilio, Peter Davis as Bartolo, Zoe Jasko as Susanna, Mark Savage as Don Curzio and Peter J as Antonio, with Fizz, Graham and Valmai in the chorus.
