Jan Renton has had a love of Gilbert and Sullivan ever since she performed in The Mikado at school. Since then she has performed in all the G&S operas over the years – some of them two or three times – with the Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society. This is the first time she will be performing in Dunfermline and her third Sorcerer.
Musical theatre has been a big part of Jan’s performing life too. Playing Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus and flying on a wire as Fruma Sarah in Fiddler on the Roof, rank among the most memorable moments.
At the present time Jan is also a member of two choirs and is singing an ABBA song at the next concert with the Cramond Community Choir … a little different from G&S! She has also performed in plays, her favourite part being Madam Arkarti in Blythe Spirit.
