June 7 - 16 | Worley Barton Theater

Gilbert & Sullivan Austin is proud to present our summer grand production of The Yeomen of the Guard at the Worley Barton Theater over two weekends, June 7-16, 2024.

Chased into the Tower of London by a mob, entertainers Jack Point and Elsie Maynard find themselves trapped in a dark world of intrigue and disguise where brave Colonel Fairfax has been falsely condemned to death. Suspense is high, as is hope for a reprieve and happy outcomes. Someone must lose, but who? And what? Gilbert’s most nuanced dramaturgy and Sullivan’s greatest music blend to amuse, chill, and tug at the heartstrings.

Yeomen is full of surprises on many levels, from overture to opening scene to closing song. Yeomen shows off Gilbert and Sullivan’s mature talents in ways that are unique to their many collaborations.

  • The Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas were composed between 1871 and 1896 in Victorian London. Their sparkling musical scores by Sir Arthur Sullivan and their dazzling lyrics by Sir William S. Gilbert have kept them popular throughout the world ever since. They've been called the "Saturday Night Live" of their day for their satiric appeal, but they have proven universal and timeless in their comic and ironic treatment of human foibles through their "airy persiflage" and "innocent merriment." And the popular appeal of the music has endeared them to millions who cherish "laughing song and merry dance." They are arguably the most popular musical comedies ever written for the stage.
