Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘Patience’ at Haddo

The ladies of the Haddo House Choral & Operatic Society are in the process of turning themselves into pre-Raphaelite beauties for the forthcoming production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Patience’ at Haddo House Hall on April 12, 13 .and 14.

Alice Dennis, who is conducting the show - which boasts a professional orchestra - said: “Everyone is having a real laugh rehearsing this show. We have some very strong actors, including our over dramatic ladies who swoon over every line uttered by the two poets, Bunthorne and Grosvenor, even when their poetry is less than inspiring!

“Its possibly the funniest of all the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas. The set and costumes are looking beautiful, and it’s a show not to miss!”

‘Patience’ can be seen at Haddo House Hall on April 12, 13 and 14 at 7,30pm. Tickets are £18, £15 (concs) and £9 (children) and discounts are available for block bookings on application.

Tickets are on sale online at www.hhcos.org.uk/boxoffice and on 01651 851111.
