Each month we look at a local club, group, society or association.
This month we feature Abbots Langley Gilbert & Sullivan Society (ALGSS) who are a performing arts society based out of Abbots Langley.
ALGSS are a performing arts society which have been running for nearly 70 years, and has been entertaining Watford audiences for around 65 years.
The society currently has around 40 members who all meet up twice a week to rehearse for their upcoming shows.
Cheryl Aughton Clark, secretary of ALGSS, described the group as a family who are always open to the right people.
She said: “The door is always open for the right people. Our society is like a family, we are a really friendly and fun company.”
To join the society, and take part in ALGSS yearly shows, people have to audition. Adult memberships cost £120 for the year with junior memberships for anyone under the age of 30 cost £60 a year.
The society are currently rehearsing hard for their annual show at the Watford Palace Theatre. This year, the show, Oklahoma, is entertaining audiences on Wednesday, 13, to Saturday 16 of February.
The show, which is a Rogers and Hammerstein musical, takes you back to the 1900’s America and revolves around the forming of Oklahoma and a love story between characters Curly and Laurey.
Tickets are still available for the shows and can be found at watfordpalacetheatre.co.uk
ALGSS are also inviting Hertfordshire residents to come and join the cast in fundraising shows at Henderson Hub on March 2.
The group are currently auditioning children for roles in the summer show, Wind and the Willows.
Anyone interested in taking part in the show at the end of June or interested in becoming a member of the group should email Emma Straten on firstname.lastname@example.org
