It's clear that mediaeval art

Director's Note

A huge welcome to all who have braved the quagmire of campus to see our show in the rocket ship that is Central Hall! Directing this production has been extremely stressful, manic and complex. Our lives have become filled with aesthetic poetry and we have been driven insane by the catchy motifs that permeate the music.

However, it has been more than worth the effort, and hopefully you will enjoy the random and predictable joy that Gilbert and Sullivan brings. Although we are the only non-auditioning society on campus, our cast are exceptionally talented and have worked non-stop to produce this feast of the arts for your delectation. Due to the immense simplicity of the plot, it matters not whether you are a Gilbert and Sullivan fan or a mere passer-by who was drawn in by the warmth of the hall in these dreary days. Our humble aim is merely to entertain you with soaring singing, nimble dancing and extravagant acting.

So sit back, relax and enjoy…

Trees and flowers,

Frankie, Leah, Matt and Pete.
