Welcome to the Gasworcs
Welcome to Worcester Gilbert and Sullivan Society pages where you will be able to find out all about our society and what we do.
Worcester Gilbert and Sullivan Society has been performing for over 40 years across Worcestershire. We mainly perform the operettas from the wonderful Victorian duo interspersed with parodies, musical hall and snippets from other musical traditions.
Our society is proud of its attention to detail, great singing and fabulous costumes as well as making sure we are one of the friendliest societies around.
There are many opportunities, other than singing and acting, for members to contribute their skills to the many and varied tasks which are essential to the successful production of a show. These include wardrobe, make-up, back stage, scenery and front of house activities.
Worcester Gilbert & Sullivan Society is very pleased to be returning to The Norbury Theatre, to present “Humbug”, a delightful version of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”.
In the past the Society has performed several of Fraser Charlton’s works which have been very favourably received, in which he very cleverly tells a story using the songs of Gilbert & Sullivan but slightly changing the lyrics.
With “Humbug” he hit on the idea of incorporating several of his favourite Christmas carols into the piece, and making them comment on the action, creating something like a combined musical and carol service with a narrator to keep the story flowing.
So - Dickens, carols, Gilbert and Sullivan – the perfect ingredients for a Christmas show to get the season started.
