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.

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 next scheduled Gilbert and Sullivan show is "The Sorcerer" in February 2023.

Our Summer concert in June when we perform a variety of songs loosely based around a theme which for 2022 (25 and 26 June) is song and dance with the title: "Let's Face the Music...."). 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.
