Gilbert & Sullivan Austin
A Gilbert & Sullivan Christmas Carol
January 7, 2024
This play tells the familiar story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s Yuletide redemption in an unfamiliar way, with Gayden Wren’s book and lyrics (inspired, of course, by Sir W. S. Gilbert) and Sir Arthur Sullivan’s music used to retell Charles Dickens’ timeless tale. This is the play’s Texas debut. We’ll also hold our annual elections.Tickets Learn more Free admission Virtual Event
Trial by Jury and More
We’ll again present the popular one-act Trial by Jury, which brought Gilbert & Sullivan togther in 1875 for what turned out to be a long and successful collaboration. We’ll round out the show with numbers from The Yeomen of the Guard.Tickets Learn more Free admission Virtual Event
The Yeomen of the Guard
2024 Summer Grand Production
GSA returns to the traditional staging of G&S comic operas with its summer 2024 Grand Production of The Yeomen of the Guard. The score is considered to be Sullivan’s finest, and Gilbert’s dialog is full of humor, puns, and one-liners. Set in the Tower of London, the story line is somewhat darker than the usual topsy-turvy G&S plot, concluding with a broken-hearted main character and only two reluctant engagements rather than the usual numerous marriages.
Auditions will be held in February 2024.
