Director's Update - The Gondoliers

The run of the show in costume was good and energy levels were much better.  Stay focussed at all times and remember to smile at the end! Also notice everything that is going on and continue to react  in character.  I want to thank the Costune Team for their sterling efforts and outstanding organisation.  You have realised the ideas and concept perfectly and the cast looks superb - exactly as we had discussed and planned.   Thank you!

Saturday is Piano Dress Rehearsal - there may be some photographs being taken during the run and a small audience too.  18:00 arrival for a 19:00 curtain up!

Carol Singing & Summer Concert

Thank you to everyone who sang carols in the Market Place on the last two Saturdays! It was great that so many of you could come, and you sounded really good. We have had lots of lovely comments and hopefully we collected lots of money for Oundle and District Care. If you still have a folder/book, please give to Marilyn or Bobbie to pass on to me.

History

Oundle Gilbert and Sullivan Players was formed in 1958. Our first show was 'The Pirates of Penzance' performed in 1959 and we have been entertaining audiences every year since. For some entertaining videos and pictures from past shows, please visit our gallery below.

Performances

We produce two shows a year. Our Gilbert & Sullivan Production is at the end of February/beginning March when we perform one of the many famous comedy operettas

Our Summer concert in June when we perform a variety of songs loosely based around a theme (the 2016 theme was transport, the title Transports of Delight). The songs range from pop, jazz and humorous songs to songs from musicals, with no Gilbert & Sullivan songs at all.

Rehearsals

We rehearse once a week on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and provide a warm welcome to all. Rehearsals for the main show start in late August / early September. Rehearsals for the Summer concert start immediately after the Spring show, usually in March.

Joining the Players

New members are always welcome. We have 2 productions a year; the Gilbert and Sullivan production rehearsals start late August and the performance is a week in February the following year. The summer concert rehearsals start in March every year and the performances over a weekend are in the middle of June. You can join as a full member and take part in either or both productions.
