Gilbert & Sullivan fans will soon have a rare chance to see Patience, a hilarious lampoon of the “celebrity culture” of Victorian times, performed by Marton Operatic Society.
Gilbert turns his sharp wit to the followers of the Aesthetic Movement of those days and makes fun of high-flown language and posturing.
Not so well known now as other G&S operas like The Mikado or The Pirates of Penzance, Patience proved hugely popular at the time and Gilbert’s clever words together with Sullivan’s delightful music show us why.
Rehearsals are well advanced under the direction of Ken Dagger (and Musical Director Tim Dagger), a father and son team out repeat earlier success.
The show is at Lowther Pavilion, Lytham from October 15 to 19 at 7.30 pm nightly with a 2.30 pm matinee on the Saturday.
Tickets are £12 (concessions £11 and matinee £10) and half price for children. Visit www.lowtherpavilion.co.uk or phone 01253 794221.
