‘…to find a mother younger than her son is very curious’
PB Theatricals youth theatre company brings magic back to the stage with Gilbert & Sullivan’s Iolanthe. After a year’s hiatus due to coronavirus, the not-for-profit youth theatre group that specialises in auditioning, rehearsing and performing shows within one week, is delighted to return to the Medway Community Centre, Bakewell for this year’s production of Iolanthe.
In this evergreen satire of British government, Strephon – a half fairy – wants to marry Phyllis but requires permission from the Lord Chancellor. Unfortunately, the Lord Chancellor and the House of Lords want to keep Phyllis for themselves. Conflict and misunderstanding leads to the House of Lords being taken over by the Fairy Queendom and long friendships torn asunder. However, owing to the ‘subtleties of the legal mind’, there may be hope after all.
This is a fun, family friendly show that is sure to delight those familiar or unfamiliar with Gilbert & Sullivan.
Performances will take place on the 14th and 15th of August at the Medway Community Centre in Bakewell. Tickets are £10 for Adults and £8 for concessions. Due to limited capacity, please book your tickets in advance by emailing: email@example.com.
