The Gondoliers

Be transported to 18th century Venice and ‘take a pair of sparkling eyes’ as you meet the handsome brothers, Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri, gondoliers extraordinaire.

Our feckless pair have just married their pretty girlfriends, Gianetta and Tessa. However, their happy-ever-after is interrupted by the news that one (and only one) of the two men is of royal birth and is due to take up his role as King of Barataria at once. No-one knows who is the rightful heir, so they are both transported to their new kingdom to await the fateful decision. Which one shall be crowned? And who will be his queen?

Some of the finest music and funniest characters in G&S will guide you to the hilarious conclusion.

Performed by local group, Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society, the show is gloriously staged in colourful traditional costume with a full orchestra and a big chorus. The show runs from Wednesday 21st March to Saturday 24th March 2018 at 7.30pm at Stantonbury Theatre, Milton Keynes, MK14 6BN.

Tickets are available from priced £16 for adults, £13 for full time students, unwaged and anyone aged 60 or over, and children (under 14s) £5. If you buy ten tickets or more, you get one extra ticket free. Alternatively, you can send your request for tickets with a cheque and stamped self-addressed envelope to The Box Office, 33 Western Drive, Hanslope, MK19 7LA.

Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society has been together for over 40 years and is always open to new members; rehearsals take place every Friday night in Stony Stratford. Please get in touch via its website

Another date for your diary: the group will be performing ‘Musicals in Concert’ with Wolverton Light Orchestra on 23rd and 24th June 2018.
