The Abbots Langley Gilbert & Sullivan Society has performed the G&S operas annually since its foundation in September 1950. We have remained firmly based in the village of Abbots Langley, although now our members come from a much wider area. Gone are the days when, as quoted after the very first production, ‘You could meet the whole cast by walking up and down Abbots Langley High Street.’
As well as our main annual production, we always try to perform each year in our home village with a concert or small production in the local village hall. Our principal venue for over 50 years has been the Watford Palace Theatre .
The society is nearly 70 years old, and we are seeing second and third generation members of the performing families taking their places, and their have been many relationships, marriages and families formed through the society. These close ties have always made our group a fun and friendly experience, and new members are always welcome.
