John Barnett, president of the Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s executive committee, said: “For more than 40 years, G&S has brought a wide range of hit musicals to the stage in Bermuda.

“This year, we wanted to showcase not only some of our most memorable past productions, but give the audience a sneak peak of what’s to come, all while highlighting some of the best local talent.”

In addition to the adult cast, the producers will be looking for talented young people [over the age of 8] to bring to life songs from shows including Annie and Oliver.

Auditions for this fun filled show will be Friday May 27 to Sunday May 29. Please contact Deborah Smith-Joell at 735-1547 for audition date and times.
