Our next production will be RUDDIGORE or The Witch’s Curse. Less well known than some of their other work, this is Gilbert and Sullivan’s take on a Victorian melodrama, complete with a fair maiden, a bashful hero, a dastardly villain, a jolly jack tar, a lovelorn madwoman, a centuries-old curse and a corps of professional bridesmaids. Oh, and ghosts! Lots of fun to be had! The creative team will be Keith White (Director), Roger Wilman (Musical Director) and Gill Eve (Choreographer).
The performances will take place at Fetcham Village Hall, The Street, Fetcham, Surrey
from Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th October at 7.30pm, plus a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30.
