We are the only student-based G&S society in London and we are dedicated to presenting the best that W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan have to offer! Our 2018-19 season will include a fully-staged version of Princess Ida in mid February in the Greenwood Theatre – KCL’s very own Off-West-End theatre venue – as well as a concert in April to provide another opportunity to showcase our talented society with solo, small group and full company numbers. We will then be taking the ghostly Ruddigore to Harrogate, Yorkshire in August to participate in the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival!
Although we hold auditions for lead roles, there is an open chorus as we believe that our shows are so much fun that everyone should have the opportunity to take part, even if you’ve never set foot on a stage before – this is your chance! If you are not interested in performing, but would still like to be involved, we also need an orchestra and stage crew, so please get in touch, we would love to have you!
KCL Gilbert and Sullivan Society is one of the best societies to be involved in. At the same time as working hard to produce a fantastic show, we also have an awesome time outside of rehearsals. We have regular socials including a weekend away, Christmas dinner, Summer ball, outings to shows and, of course, the weekly pub trip after every rehearsal!
We had a phenomenal time up in Harrogate at the International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in August this year and our double bill of Trial By Jury and H.M.S. Pinafore charmed its way into winning 4 awards and receiving 2 more nominations!
