WELCOME TO STAMFORD GILBERT AND SULLIVAN PLAYERS
Stamford Gilbert and Sullivan Players have been performing the works of Gilbert and Sullivan in Stamford since 1951. Our aim is to continue to present these enjoyable operettas to the public in annual, fully-staged, traditional productions and to keep the works alive for future generations! We are an enthusiastic and fun society based in Stamford, Lincolnshire but our singers come from a wide area locally and include all ages and backgrounds. Although Covid has prevented us from taking to the stage recently, this year we are proud to celebrate our Platinum Anniversary, meaning we have been entertaining audiences for 70 years!
Following a very difficult two years with theatres ‘going dark’ we are delighted to say that we are now positively looking forward to 2022. We have started rehearsals for our forthcoming production THE SORCERER, and look forward to welcoming our audiences back.
On Saturday March 19th and 26th 2022 at 7pm, in two beautiful churches, in Stamford and Braunston-in-Rutland respectively, we presented AN EVENING OF GILBERT AND SULLIVAN.
HERE’S OUR REVIEW FROM THE BRAUNSTON VILLAGE NEWSLETTER: Saturday’s concert by the Stamford Gilbert & Sullivan Players was a sell-out success. The church was full for an excellent evening’s entertainment, taking us through the musical life of Gilbert & Sullivan with varied extracts from all their works, from the popular comic numbers, through some beautiful solos, to rousing full chorus pieces. It was a very professional production, even more impressive given that the company was at little more than half-strength having been hit hard by Covid. But the show went on, and I’m sure that no-one would have guessed that some last minute changes had to be made – with the possible exception that one of the little maids from school did seem to have a quite a deep voice! With drinks and nibbles to keep us fortified during the interval, it was a most enjoyable evening and raised much needed funds for the church repairs. If you enjoyed this concert and fancy joining Stamford Gilbert & Sullivan Players for their next show ‘The Sorcerer’, they would love to hear from you! They welcome all ages and levels of experience, either front of house or on the stage where the magic itself happens!
