Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company
Welcome to the website of the Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company, an inclusive theatre company solely dedicated to performing the works of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan in the York area.
As an amateur company, we welcome members of all ages and abilities, and pride ourselves on being fully inclusive to everyone. We will not hold auditions for chorus members as we believe anyone who wants to turn up and sing should be able to! Whether you've never sung G&S music before or you're a G&S addict we would love you to come and join us.
Please use the links at the top of the page to find out more about us. If you would like more information or would like to join the company, please get in touch.
We always welcome new members and pride ourselves on being fully inclusive, so that everyone who wants to come along and sing can do so. As such, we do not hold auditions for chorus members and are delighted to welcome people of all experiences and abilities. We are a friendly and supportive group, and always try to make everyone feel welcome and valued. We rehearse on Monday nights (7:30pm), at Huntington Methodist Church and our performance schedule normally sees us perform three times a year:
- a Spring production in March/April, at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre and venues around the York area;
- a fully-staged show in September, at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre; and
- a concert in November, at a venue in the York area.
To help with our costs, we do ask all members to pay an annual membership fee (currently £10) and we do, also, ask for performance fees, for each of our shows and concerts that people take part in. These go towards the cost of costume and venue hire.
If you are interested in joining us, please do contact us for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org) or come along to a rehearsal to meet us and see what we’re like! Whether you’re a G&S fanatic, a seasoned singer or a performing novice, we would be delighted to hear from you. We, also, have an orchestra which supports our production in September. If you would be interested in being part of that, then please register your interest with Matthew Collins, our Musical Director: email@example.com.
From the 17th to 19th September 2015, Jorvik GSC will return with a brand-new fully-staged production of The Sorcerer! The production will be held at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre.
Previous fully staged productions have included Iolanthe (2014), Ruddigore (2013), H.M.S. Pinafore (2012), Princess Ida (2011), The Mikado (2010) and Patience (2009). The company has performed sing-along productions of The Mikado (2012) and The Pirates of Penzance (2011). In addition we have presented numerous concerts, introducing our audience to highlights and favourites from the well-loved G&S operas.
If you are interested in engaging Jorvik GSC to perform at your venue or your event please e-mail us as firstname.lastname@example.org.
