Wolverton G&S Society

Wolverton G&S Society is a thriving and successful amateur music group. We have been performing since 1975.

We perform the works of Gilbert & Sullivan as well as other good musicals and we bring people together with songs and smiles. It’s like magic, but the secret is just good friends and great music!

Packed with sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, absurd
adventures and improbable paradoxes, The Pirates of Penzance returns to the Stantonbury Theatre stage this May with the Wolverton Gilbert and Sullivan Society.

Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there’s a snag. Born on 29 February, Frederic discovers that he is technically still a youngster. Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?

Join us in the lovely Stantonbury Theatre for a great evening out of live musical theatre from Wednesday 1st to Saturday 4th May 2024, at 7.30 p.m.

Tickets priced £20 are available from or call 01908 510452.
