Welcome to St. Andrew’s Gilbert and Sullivan Society!
We are a modest sized society based at St. Andrew’s URC and have been bringing G&S shows to the stage since 1953, having been formed by members of the church and still with many active church members both on and off stage. We are also delighted to have the talents of the many younger members, who bring a new freshness to the shows. We welcome new and returning members of all ages and abilities, both on and off stage, so please do join us.
We’re welcoming back Richard Temperley as our Director and Paul Hartley in his 61st year with the society as our MD for this year’s production of “The Gondoliers”.
Show dates are Wednesday 5th to Saturday 8th October 2016. Tickets and further details are available from Ann and Ray Hammond on 0191 252 3319 or email
If you’d like to join us on stage you can be assured of a very warm welcome. Rehearsals are on Monday evenings from 7:30pm, with principal rehearsals on Wednesdays from 7:45pm.
