Don’t blink and you won’t miss the complete comedic collected works of the famous duo in Barnstaple.

Jane Webster is among the company who will bring you Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged this Friday (February 15).Jane Webster is among the company who will bring you Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged this Friday (February 15).

THE hilarious experience of 14 operettas in 90 minutes comes to the Queen’s Theatre in Barnstaple this Friday with Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged.

Step – briefly – on to the deck of HMS Pinafore and join the Pirates of Penzance for a quick reviving as this zany and ambitious comic parody takes the audience on a whirlwind tour through the entire works of the famous duo.

With a voluptuous mezzo, a veteran baritone, a pompous tenor and an ambitious but ditsy soprano attempting the blot in an hour-and-a- half, this UK premier of the ingenious US comedy does for Gilbert and Sullivan what the Reduced Shakespeare Company did for the Bard.

This is a show for Gilbert and Sullivan aficionados, anyone who would like to know more about them or even those who thought they were a firm of solicitors, but appreciate good comedy and a roll in the aisles.

The show starts at 8pm, and tickets are available from 01271 324242 or visit www.northdevontheatres.org.uk
