Topsy Turvy — A Celebration of Gilbert and Sullivan, 1pm Friday

My Lords, Ladies & Gentles, pray join us in Caledon Rothesay at 1pm SLT for a celebration, through music & dance, of the topsy-turvy world of GILBERT & SULLIVAN, with selections from their comic operettas that have earned such Great Success in London, and various curious musical interludes inspired by their works, all brought to light under the baton of Presenter MR ELRIK MERLIN of Radio Riel.

The performance will take place between 1pm and 3pm SLT on Friday 10th April at the FLYING HERON THEATRE in the skies above CALEDON ROTHESAY. Patrons are encouraged to wear formal evening dress or a costume inspired by the operas, and a PRIZE will be given to the best dressed person in attendance, but all are welcome to attend in whatever garments they feel comfortable.

During the course of the event, MR MERLIN, upon suitable donation to the noble cause of the occasion, may be persuaded to perform, without the aid of a safety net, one or two SONGS from said Works, live before the audience, at great risk to Life & Limb.

Patrons are advised that THE ELECTRIC BELL will ring in the salons and corridor three minutes prior to the rising of the curtain, and OPERA GLASSES will be available from the attendants at one shilling and sixpence for the evening.

This delicious froth of aural delight is brought to you courtesy of Team Caledon 2009, and all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.

The MUSIC for this extravaganza may be heard on Radio Riel’s MAIN STREAM, but patrons are reminded that attendance in person may be even more fun.
