This May an exciting new production of the G&S classic comic opera, The Sorcerer, at the Frazer Theatre
WHY NOT JOIN US?
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.
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 at the wonderful Harrogate Theatre. And you don't have to live in the town to be a member. We rehearse on Mondays at 7.30, at Time Together, Starbeck.

We'll be joining in with Knareborough’s VE Day anniversary celebrations this May with brand new production of the spell-binding G&S classic, The Sorcerer.
This delightful comic opera contains some of the finest melodies Sullivan ever wrote and was his first major success with WS Gilbert. Directed by Oliver Longstaff, this new version of The Sorcerer brings the plot into the 1940s as the villagers prepare to celebrate. When starry-eyed young lovers, Alexis and Aline, decide everyone in their village should be as happy as they are and hire a magician to brew a love potion for the village, typical G&S mayhem and hilarity ensue.
A great evening of entertainment and wonderful singing is anticipated in this magical 1940s production of The Sorcerer – think ‘G&S meets Dad’s Army’!
The show runs at the Frazer Theatre from Thursday 28 May-Saturday 30 May with performances at 7.30pm each night and a Saturday matinee on the 30th at 2.30pm.
