The award-winning all-male troupe return to Cambridge Arts Theatre with another fresh, fun and inventive spin on a classic Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera, Iolanthe.
Director Sasha Regan said: “I am thrilled that Iolanthe will be touring once again. These all male productions stem from my memories of performing Gilbert and Sullivan’s productions when I was at a single-sex school and I’ve always loved the innocence attached to these productions. The laughter and playfulness afforded by setting it in this all-male environment allows the audience to really tap into the topsy turvy world without being detached from it.”
Sasha Regan’s all-male company has previously played at Cambridge Arts Theatre with the Gilbert and Sullivan operas The Pirates of Penzance, HMS Pinafore and The Mikado. Renowned for their charming, witty and inventive reinterpretations of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operas, Iolanthe was nominated for numerous Off West End Awards when it premiered in 2011, including best director, best choreographer, best production and best male performance.
The production runs from July 3-7 and tickets are priced from £19-£24 and available from the box office on: 01223 503333 or online: www.cambridgeartstheatre.com
