Wakefield Gilbert & Sullivan Society

Forthcoming Events

Trial By Jury and The Zoo – 16th and 17th March 2018

This year, the Society is delighted to be able to invite you to Sandal Methodist Church, Barnsley Road, Wakefield, to see two shows, the first  by  Gilbert and Sullivan and the other with music by Arthur Sullivan but lyrics by B. C. Stephenson. They were both written around the same time i.e. 1875 so the music of Sullivan can be compared between the two operas.

The cast for the shows is as follows


Laetitia Grinder                             Liz Blount

Eliza Smith                                     Valerie Green

Aesculapius Carboy                       Ian Stewart

The Plaintiff                                    Maggie Lowe

The Judge                                        Bobbie Greatorex
