Cast for Iolanthe announced
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’!
Sir Marmaduke Pointdextre - Gordon Fawcett
Alexis - Jack Megson
Dr Daly - David Parker
A Notary - John Carter
John Wellington Wells - Graham Weston
Hercules - tbc
Lady Sangazure - Jane Fawcett
Aline - Brittany Rachin
Mrs Partlett - Julie Robinson
Constance - Megan Mead
We are Back!!

On Monday 6th September we will start rehearsals for the (normally) annual Christmas Concert with the Brighouse and Rastrick Band. As it is so long since we sang together we won't be working too hard this week so come along and have a sing, a drink, a nibble and a chat. We would love you to join us!
Rehearsals are held at St Pauls Church Hall, just off Victoria Avenue.
