About the shows:
You're invited back in time to Regency England through MUSE's colourful and whimsical adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Sorcerer. You are immersed in the wedding celebrations of young star-crossed-lovers Aline and Alexis who employ the mysterious and intriguing John Wellington Wells, and mayhem ensues. Love, magic and the mysterious take hold of the people of this usually quiet town as the poor, rich, young and old are taken hold of by the supernatural and their overwhelming desire to love.
Trial by Jury:
Gilbert and Sullivan step into the glittering world of swinging, singing society in this spectacular 1920s reworking of Trial by Jury. With sass, stockings, and, of course, liberal smatterings of illicit scotch, the era of prohibition has never been so fun. In the case that stops the nation, and will have the society pages bursting at the seams with scandal, Angelina, sweetheart of stage and screen, sues Edwin, oozing with ruffian charm, for breach of promise of marriage. Flappers in feathers and floozies in suits (legal, of course), make this a show not to be missed.
