Abbots Langley Gilbert & Sullivan Society (ALGSS) say they are “delighted to be back” as they prepare to perform for the first time post pandemic.

The talented group will return to the stage to perform their show, Pirates of Penzance, from February 2 to 5 with tickets now on sale.

It will take place at Watford Palace Theatre with this comic opera full of pirates, policemen, a bevy of beautiful maidens, fun, laughter and music performed with ALGSS’s renowned orchestra.

The cast are already well underway with rehearsals.

Emma Stratton, who plays Ruth in Pirates of Penzance, told ABBOTSnews: “Everyone is delighted to be back together in rehearsal. Because we’ve missed it feels more fun than before.

“Rehearsals are also going well as we aim to be ahead of where we would normally be at this stage.

“It’s so we can allow time for anyone that becomes unwell or needs to self-isolate. It means the audience can be sure we will be well prepared.

“We chose Pirates of Penzance because it is timeless. It’s full of life and joyful show and all the stuff any Gilbert & Sullivan fan would appreciate.

“It will be a brilliant family fun day out with the content appealing to all ages. I think it’s also brilliant for those that may not have ventured out much yet after the pandemic.

“The theatre takes every possible measure to keep people safe so you couldn’t be in better hands.”
