Iolanthe 2023

Iolanthe 2023

ALGSS flutter back to the Watford Palace Theatre stage with their production of the fantastical Gilbert & Sullivan classic, ‘Iolanthe’. Get ready to be swept along into the magic of Fairyland and to witness the sheer hilarity of the ineffective Peers from the House of Lords.

Many years ago the Fairy Queen banished Iolanthe from Fairyland for marrying a mortal. Now, Iolanthe’s son, Strephon, wishes to marry Phyllis. However he cannot do so without the permission of her guardian, the Lord Chancellor, who shows little enthusiasm for his ward marrying a mere shepherd…
