We are excited to inform you about our next production, IT’S SHOWTIME.

Choreographer – JARED SCHAEDLER
Set & Costume Designer – WALDO BUCKLE
Production Manager – MELISSA MARCUS
Production Facilitator – ROSEMARY WILKE
For one night only, G&S presents, IT’S SHOWTIME, a musical review made up of your favourite musical memories.
Come and enjoy an evening of fun filled entertainment.
Say “Hello!” to the Elders, have a drink with the Thénardiers or have a close-up moment with Norma Desmond before lamenting with Cinderella’s Stepsisters. Gentlemen can look forward to a close shave by Mr Todd, after enjoying (or becoming) one of Mrs Lovett’s delicious hot pies. And don’t worry about forgetting another suitcase in another hall, if you are a rich man, you can forget about all your troubles over a plate of food, glorious food!
Whilst you reach for the stars and the moon, and whether it’s your wedding day or you are footloose, be prepared to experience seasons of love with the G&S cast as they entertain you. It is written in the stars that you’ll be back after interval and it will feel as if we never said goodbye.
