This October, Garstang Musical Productions will stage Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe.

The show, choreographed by Julia Coombes, is at Garstang Community Academy from October 22-25.

This comic opera has been produced by Tony Hindle, supported by musical director Alex Phillips.

Iolanthe is a love story full of self-sacrifice and bucking the system, which satirises many aspects of British government and law. The story is regarded as one of Sir Arthur Sullivan’s most beautifully scored, and a high watermark in terms of music, wit and colour.

The performances start at 7.30pm and tickets can be bought from September 15 for £9 (£6 for under 16s on Saturday October 25) at Car Care in Garstang, or by calling Alan on 01995 606603.
