Happy New Year - this is our 75th season and in May we will be performing Mikado in the Fraser Theatre
Our performance of Mikado will take place in the last week of May. We will launch the show with a club night on Monday 13th February for those who wish to have a sing through and see what it is all about! For those who know the work and wish to be considered for a named part please have a look at our Auditions page for more information.
Harrogate Gilbert and Sullivan Society was formed in 1972 by a group of G & S enthusiasts with our first production in Harrogate Theatre in May 1973. The Society has gone from strength to strength over the years and has continued to stage a production each May or June in the same theatre. In 2019 we moved our main production to the Fraser Theatre in Knaresborough with great success. Since 1986, in addition to our stage production we have held two Christmas concerts each year in conjunction with the world-famous Brighouse and Rastrick Band.
The Society is committed to the works of Sir W S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan "in order to foster public knowledge and appreciation of such works by means of public performance". We hold Club Nights on the second Monday of every month, except when a production is imminent.
We welcome new members and patrons – you don’t need to know much about G&S to join … many of us just love the fun, the music and chance to perform on stage!
We rehearse on Mondays at 7.30 in St Paul's Church Hall, just off Victoria Avenue.
We will start 2023 with our New Year Party on Monday 9th January - do come along and meet us for some food and fun!
