Product Description

We confidently predict that this new Gilbert and Sullivan style show will be a massive hit. This delicious pastiche has an outstandingly tuneful score, with script and lyrics bursting with wit and humour!

In a plot which has echoes of The Magnificent Seven, Daisy, daughter of Buttercup, seeks help to thwart a band of outrageous female pirates, who have taken her lover as a hostage. With the help of Iolanthe, the Fairy Queen, and the Princess Ida, she enlists the aid of The Mikado, The Scorcerer, The Duke of Plaza-Toro, Admiral Sir Joseph Porter, and Major-General Stanley to save the day. Audiences are bound to be captivated, whether Gilbert and Sullivan fans or not, as this superb musical stands up in its own right. The script and lyrics have a Gilbertian ring to them but uncluttered by heavy Victorianism. The songs have the soaring melodies, thumping rhythms and catchy tunes that capture the true Sullivan flavour.

With 11 principal parts and a chorus that varies from Islanders to Pirates and from Fairies to Policemen, all with plenty of lines to contribute, pupils and staff will find this entertaining and delightful, as well as being a rewarding challenge. If it is your experience that girls tend to outnumber boys in their enthusiasm to appear in school productions, this is definitely the show for you!
