Dress up for a night out with some noir film glamour! Every five years we mark our anniversary with a semi formal gala event. Our 45th Anniversary Gala’s served, sit-down dinner will honor our new class of inductees into the Gilbert & Sullivan Austin Hall of Fame: Andy Fleming, June Julian, Michael Meigs, and Jeanne Sasaki. The program showcases the versatility of W.S. Gilbert’s clever lyrics: as a musical accompaniment to four classic noir films. Talented performers Leann Fryer, June Julian, Josue Hernandez, and Robert LeBas reinterpret memorable scenes from the films “Double Indemnity”, “Key Largo”, “Laura”, and “Sunset Boulevard.” Produced by Janette Jones with piano accompanist Jeanne Sasaki.

The Sorcerer in Concert

Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School – 11908 N. Lamar
Gilbert and Sullivan’s Sorcerer is magically transported to Las Vegas. An idealistic social reformer convinced that love can bridge institutional divides, a Vegas conjuror, a wedding chapel, potions and spells, what could go wrong? “The Sorcerer” was the first G&S opera to use all the major character types and range of songs that would define their later collaborations: comic duets, patter songs, novel ensembles, and a sparkling chorus that acts as a major character. This charming concert-style performance will be on stage with limited staging and sets live at the Worley Barton Theater!
Directed by Jeffrey Jones- Ragona. Accompanist Joseph Choi. All lyrics will be captioned.

At long last, it’s the show you love in a brand new setting! The Mikado has been moved to the highlands of Scotland and becomes The McAdo. Gilbert’s libretto and Sullivan’s score will be kept virtually intact, while the scenery and costumes will reflect the Scottish moors. It’s a farcical tale of a wand’ring minstrel, a cowardly executioner, an iron-fisted ruler, and some of the greatest songs in musical theater! Gilbert & Sullivan Austin is proud to present The McAdo as our first Grand Summer Production in 3 years. Marvelous staging and set design, brilliant costumes, and a live orchestra of 20 pieces. Directed by Michelle Hache, with Jeffrey Jones-Ragona Music Director.
Auditions for The McAdo will be held February 5th, 2022. Learn more about auditioning
