About the Show

Who can resist the story of this young woman? Betrothed in babyhood to a prince, she instead forsakes the company of men and sets up an all-female university. When three young men dressed as women try to gain entrance to the school, war between the sexes ensues. The combination of witty dialogue and charming music makes this abridged concert version of one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most comical operas a must-see. Singers will be in formal attire, with minimal staging, and suggestions of costumes. The performance will be polished vocally and will bring the story to life through dialogue, singing, and movement.
