The Gondoliers

Deservedly one of the most popular of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas but not one you will often see done. Giuseppe and Marco, two Venetian gondoliers, have just married Tessa and Gianetta, when they are told that one of them is the King of Barataria. Unfortunately, knowing which one is a problem because he was entrusted as a baby to the care of a drunken gondolier who mixed up the prince with his own son. They agree to share the responsibilities of governing Barataria until the true heir can be known. Matters are complicated when the Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro reveal that their daughter, Casilda, was married to the then future king as an infant. In true Gilbertian style, true love never runs smoothly and we learn that Casilda is herself in love with another man.

Bournemouth G&S Society is a multi-award winning company, this year celebrating their 70th anniversary. Their much praised production of the Mikado here last November was also presented at the prestigious International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival at Harrogate in August 2016.

Justin Moorhouse: People And Feelings

From Live at the Apollo, Phoenix Nights, The News Quiz (BBC Radio 4) and Fighting Talk (BBC 5Live). A little slimmer but still as “belly laugh funny” (Manchester Evening News), everyone’s favourite northern charmer Justin Moorhouse is back on the road and better than ever. After touring last year’s show, of which The Guardian said “the amount of first-rate comic craft that goes into his deceptively simple routines is worthy of admiration” he’s had a think about people. And feelings. About people Justin knows, their feelings and how he feels about them. And they about him. It’ll be a (very) funny show. Promise.
