It’s only March, but things are already starting to warm up for the 2014 International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival! This year the event will be held in Harrogate for the first time – with the main festival performances being held in The Royal Hall and UniFest performances taking place in Harrogate Theatre.

I’m delighted to have been cast as Nicemis in SavoyNet Performing Group’s production of Thespis – Gilbert and Sullivan’s first collaboration! We’re using the Baker-Henty version, under the direction of Gary Slavin and musical direction of Jared Berry – both of whom I’m very much looking forward to working with.

I performed with SavoyNet last year as Kate in their festival-winning Yeomen of the Guard, directed by Diana Burleigh and musically-directed by Emily Senturia. It was fantastic to meet so many other Gilbert and Sullivan enthusiasts – and to savour the eclectic atmosphere of the festival itself.

The performance takes place on August 13th – so if you’re in the Harrogate area, please do come along!

  1. Nicemis has some good lines, I’ll look forward to seeing you on DVD! Wish I could be there again this year but unfortunately it’s not an option. Chookas and toi toi!

    • Thanks very much, Michael! It’ll be great to perform with SavoyNet again. Sad to hear you won’t be coming along – so I hope you’ll be back in 2015! All the best 🙂
