Let’s push the boat out!
Be transported to 18th century Venice and ‘take a pair of sparkling eyes’ as you meet the handsome brothers, Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri, gondoliers extraordinaire.
Our feckless pair have just married their pretty girlfriends, Gianetta and Tessa. However, their happy-ever-after is interrupted by the news that one (and only one) of the two men is of royal birth and is due to take up his role as King of Barataria at once. No-one knows who is the rightful heir, so they are both transported to their new kingdom to await the fateful decision. Which one shall be crowned? And who will be his queen?
Some of the finest music and funniest characters in G&S will guide you to the hilarious conclusion.
Performed by local group, Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society, the show is gloriously staged in colourful traditional costume with a full orchestra and a big chorus.
