We loved it!

Iolanthe was great fun for everyone, whether in the audience, in the orchestra pit, on the stage or behind the scenes, and we’re all sad that it’s over. In due course there will be a show archive page: meanwhile, you can enjoy reading the programme which will reveal a great deal about Michael Scott’s fresh vision for our production, a play-within-a-play, where the villagers of “Thanolie” meet at the village hall during an unexpected clash of bookings. The ladies of the Women’s Institute, having been inspired by the members of the dance class to discover their “fairy selves”, enlist their men-folk, and act out the story that Gilbert devised, though with some of the lyrics adapted to poke fun at more modern events and people.

Next appearance

We hope to announce a summer concert shortly, but your next chance to see the Society on stage at Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline will be on 27 February – 1 March 2025.
