Reviews of previous productions

…a professional style productions, especially the excellent cast, who were all well suited to their roles.

This was a fast-paced show with an exceptional cast throughout.

It was the best evening out I’ve had in a long time. I was ‘blown away’ by the standard of the production – and it was so much fun!

Every production that I have seen by this Society has been the perfect interpretation of Gilbert and Sullivan, with an excellent chorus and always the right casting of the main characters.
