We are a 30-year old operatic society which performs a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta each year in the Spring at Hornby Institute, Hornby, Lancaster, where we also meet and rehearse. We rehearse on Friday nights from mid-September and Saturday mornings nearer to the show dates. We welcome energetic new members who are interested in singing, acting, set building, prompting, props and front of house. Find out more about membership. Our last double production "HMS Pinafore and Trial By Jury " were yet again a sell-out. We perform with an orchestra which is very popular with our audiences and greatly enhances the sense of occasion and drama. We perform with attractive sets, lighting and fully costumed, to create a rich theatrical effect! Our Producer and MD are highly experienced with a great deal of technique to share.
Our production of HMS Pinafore with Trial by Jury in 2014 was only nominated by our NODA rep, Katherine Carradus, for Best G&S Production NW Region 2014! Congratulations to all involved, too many to mention (no wonder they say that in speeches). The awards evening and banquet is in Manchester on May 3rd.
