The Gondoliers tells the story of two charming Venetian gondoliers, Giuseppe and Marco, who are informed that due to an error of identity when they were young boys, one of them is the heir to the throne of Barataria. They are delighted with the situation and agree to share the responsibilities of governing their new kingdom until it can be ascertained which of them is which, but matters are complicated when the Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro reveal that their beautiful daughter, Casilda, was married to the future king as an infant. The problem? Giuseppe and Marco are both newly married to the contadine Tessa and Gianetta, and Casilda is in love with her father’s attendant, Luiz. Since its premiere in 1889, The Gondoliers has delighted audiences with its memorable score by Sullivan, and its political satire, cleverly tucked into Gilbert’s witty plotline.
The New Jersey Boys, based in Devon, take their audience on a nostalgic musical journey through the career of one of the biggest selling groups of all times - The Four Seasons. This choreographed show, featuring the amazing falsetto voice of Einar Vestman and the talented all round entertainer Gary Gould, is a clever mixture of tight vocal harmonies, superb solo spots and light comedy. The packed two set programme includes all the hits such as Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like a Man and many more. This is a wonderful opportunity to see where it all began when four boys from New Jersey, USA invented their own unique sound which became a worldwide success. Early booking is recommended for this show which consistently sells out at venues across the UK. An added bonus to the evening will be a tribute to another great rock and roll band, Showaddywaddy. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing and dancing!
