We had our open rehearsal for The Grand Duke last night and it was lovely to see such a large turnout – especially given the train strikes making it more difficult for people to get into London. Thank you to everyone who managed to make it and for the fantastic sound we all made together!
We heard from our director Vicky and musical director Chris about the show, and how they plan to approach this often overlooked Gilbert and Sullivan show. It’s a show which never got the benefit of revisions and refinement that many of their other shows underwent and so suffers from some flabby dialogue and a few cuttable musical numbers. Rest assured Vicky and Chris will be applying some judicious editoral scissors to cut the show down to its lean best!
If you missed the open rehearsal then fear not – there’s still lots of time to get involved in The Grand Duke. Head to our Join GLOC page to find out more and to sign up to our mailing list to hear details about rehearsals.
