The Yeomen of the Guard is just the merry romp to get you out of the house and into doublet and hose.
Set in ye olde England but about as Shakespearean as Errol Flynn in tights, the plot, like many a G&S show, is as silly as a souffle but filled with the most wonderful characters and songs. Blindfolded heroines, dashing heroes, indomitable dames, and pedantic gaolers with a penchant for thumbscrew torture, compete with each other to steal the show and your affections.
Making his debut as a director, Michael Brett, who has been musical director of many of the Society’s recent productions, said that The Yeomen of the Guard was the most surprising in the G&S repertoire of 14 shows.
