Torches flash in the darkness as a party of naughty schoolboys adventure into the magical surroundings of an old theatre. Amid all the backstage paraphernalia they discover a Narnia-like wardrobe and a dusty copy of Gilbert and Sullivan's Iolanthe. What follows is pure magic! Universally regarded as Sir Arthur Sullivan's most beautiful score, Iolanthe is a topsy-turvy love story between the most unlikely of couples... fairies and members of the House of Lord's! Sasha Regans' all male, award-winning company return with their best received production. Her inimitable inventiveness combined with Gilbert and Sullivan's inherent barminess make for an un-missable night out. Iolanthe became the fourth consecutive major success for Gilbert and Sullivan. It was the first work to premiere at the Savoy and first new theatre production in the world to be illuminated entirely with electric lights! "If you remember the impact of Joe Papp's ground-breaking Pirates of Penzance 30 years ago then this is a similar moment: a tired operetta kicked into new, fizzing life." The Observer (Iolanthe can also be seen at the East Riding Theatre in Beverley in the early part of the same week) BSL signed performance Saturday 2 June 2.30pm
