The Jambouree Cabaret Singers, along with a Chorus of local singers, are about to start rehearsing for an evening of the famous duo’s music. This will take place on Sunday the 10th of September, at 7pm in St Leonard’s-in-the-Fields Church.
The first half will present excerpts from various Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, featuring choruses, solos, duets and quartets. In the second half the audience will become the spectators in a Scottish courtroom for a performance of “Trial By Jury”, set in Perth. The judge, played by Kenneth Maciver, will try the case of the defendant in an action for breach of promise of marriage. The defendant will be played by Liam Bonthrone and his jilted bride by Teenah Bee. The lyrics have been slightly updated to suit the Perth setting by Alan Laing, who will compere the evening’s entertainment.
Well-known Musical Director Edna Auld has always wanted to introduce Gilbert and Sullivan to her Cabaret Singers.
