The Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society has spent the last 30-plus years bringing musical theatre to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.
The G & S, as it has become known, is a stalwart of high quality amateur theatre. The productions, whether light opera, English pantomime or broadway musical, are hilarious, fast-paced fun. They’re almost as enjoyable to watch as they are to perform.
If you’d like to know more about the G & S, its shows, or how to get involved, read on.
Founded in 1982, our initial performances consisted of excerpts from the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. When financially able, we began to perform complete operettas.
Today we are a charitable organization dedicated to performing all 14 works of G&S. Our membership comes from all walks of life.
Sometimes, when time and money permit, we produce a more traditional musical, like The Pajama Game or Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
However, each and every year during the Christmas season we stage a traditional British Panto with a cast of approximately 30 adults, youths and children. For many, this is their first exposure to musical theatre.
In all of our productions the emphasis is on fun. As a community theatre society, we know how lucky we are to have a group of talented, dedicated individuals commit their time and effort to our shows. We want to make everyone’s experience a blast. And we must be doing something right; we’ve been going for three decades!
