Gilbert & Sullivan returns to the Guildhall Theatre in Derby next week as Rose Hill Musical Society perform The Yeomen of the Guard.
Colonel Fairfax is awaiting execution having been falsely charged by an evil kinsman who stands to inherit all of Farifax’s estates if he dies unmarried.
In an attempt to thwart the Kinsman, the colonel persuades the lieutenant of the tower to find a woman who would be prepared to marry him immediately prior to his execution.
The story develops with clever twists leaving the audience surprised and entertained through what is regarded by Gilbert & Sullivan as their best work together.
The Yeomen of the Guard runs from Tuesday, March 15 Saturday 19 March at 7.30pm each night, plus a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
Tickets are £12 for the Tuesday night, £13 for the Wednesday night and £14 all other performances.
Tickets are available from Peter Featherstone on 0115 9258717 or firstname.lastname@example.org
