ABOUT OUR PRODUCTION

For our 40th Anniversary production of 'The Yeomen Of The Guard', we are aiming to put a fresh spin on the grandest of all the Gilbert & Sullivan collaborations. Our band of strolling players will transport the audience to the Tower of London as they present the classic tale of The Merryman and his Maid... 

ABOUT ABERDEEN G&S SOCIETY

Our society was formed at the University of Aberdeen in 1976 and so we are one of the longest continuously-running musical theatre societies in the city. We are the only group performing an annual fully staged Gilbert & Sullivan production in Aberdeen.

This year we have a cast of 35, with an age range of 17 to 70, and among our ranks are students of all higher educational establishments in Aberdeen as well as graduates and non-students.

We perform our annual show every February on the stage of Aberdeen's Art Centre Theatre, supported by a full professional orchestra of 20 players or more.

WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP? 

We are a non-profit amateur theatre organisation, and so are reliant on annual fundraising in order to raise sufficient funds to put on our productions.

We need to pay for our venue hire, orchestra hire, costumes, scenery and other technical requirements, and any funds pledged via this site will help us reach our goal!

We want to put on a fantastic show for our 40th Anniversary and secure our society's future as we reach this landmark.

By supporting us, you will be helping our society to continue allowing successive generations to experience Gilbert & Sullivan's works and enrich the local arts scene in Aberdeen.
