The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Austin presents a very special performance of Very Truly Yours, Gilbert & Sullivan—an Austin premiere of this captivating new show. Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail, Jr. stage directs this melodic and comic delight, and Jeffrey Jones-Ragona provides musical direction. Seating is limited to 220; audience members should arrive early.

Very Truly Yours, Gilbert & Sullivan is a two-act play featuring dramatic and comic readings from the correspondence of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, interspersed with songs from all 14 of the operas on which they collaborated. The piece is based on the team's diaries and letters, contemporary memoirs and newspaper reports. It is filled with joy, exuberance, tenderness, and—as always with Gilbert & Sullivan—lovely music and mirthful fun.

Hear some of your favorite G&S singers in concert: Tamsen Cohagan, June Julian, Holton Johnson, Patrick Wright, and David Fontenot will provide readings, solos, and ensembles. Narration will be by Allan Longacre and musical accompaniment by Karl Logue.

Watch VideoIn an exciting coup for G&S Austin, the playwright himself, Gayden Wren, will be present for this performance.  Mr. Wren, the entertainment editor for the New York Times Syndicate and author of the best-selling book, A Most Ingenious Paradox, will be available at intermission and after the show to sign copies of his book. Those wishing to meet the author and enjoy a private talk and performance before the show may make a donation of $25 or more and arrive no later than 2:00 p.m.

The performance will be followed by a social hour, and guests are invited to bring snacks and treats to share.

Don’t miss this rare and charming performance!
 
 

Auditions February 27 & 28 - SIGN UP TODAY!
Auditions by appointment only

The Gondoliers
 
The Gondoliers possesses perhaps the most sparkling and tuneful music of any composed by Sullivan, and indeed provides the most dancing. Gilbert returns to his favorite theme of topsy-turvydom, and satirizes snobbery regarding class distinctions in society.

Auditions are by appointment only. Sign up today for your audition time slot. Complete Information and Forms here. All roles are open for casting including principals and chorus.
