The Playhouse Theatre, Preston

Great amateur theatre, right in the heart of Preston



A comic opera in two acts, by W.S.Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan


7th to 10th March 2018


Ruddigore is now regarded as one of the gems of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon.


A satirical take on the Victorian Melodrama genre, Ruddigore's zany plot has it all - ghosts, witches, curses, disguises, and even a wicked villain who tries to make off with their fair maiden.


All of the Baronets of the locale are under a terrible curse enacted by a witch a long time ago. Each of the successive Baronets must commit some kind of crime every single day, or else they will die in terrible agony.


Ruddigore is an ensemble tour de force with a wealth of fun character roles.
