Concert Party

An Evening with Gilbert and Sullivan

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Victoria Concert Parties have proved to be an excellent source of revenue for fund-raising groups and for the Society. We have performed for Service Clubs, Church Guilds, Bowling Clubs etcetera.

If you are involved in, or are aware of, fund-raising groups that may be interested in having a Concert Party performance at their function, please contact us or pass on our contact details.

The Concert Party in its current format was established in the early 1980's. Auditions are held, and a seasoned group of performers is waiting to entertain you.

A normal programme comprises a narration of the lives and collaboration of Gilbert and Sullivan, interspersed with excerpts from the 14 shows they co-wrote. Requests for particular items can usually be accommodated given two weeks notice.

Shorter, tailored programmes are negotiable.

Email Us if you would like us to perform a concert party at your venue.

The Archive is currently being updated and entered into the database of this new site by the Archivist Diana (Hatch) Faizoulline and Webmaster, Alex Scutt. This is likely to take some time. This means that although the Society's productions from 1936 to date now have a presence in our archive, it will be a little time before all of them are available for viewing on this site. Please take a look at the archive pages, as many of the shows have been transferred into our new database. If you would like any information about a show that is currently "offline", please contact one of us, or check back regularly.

You may also have information that can help us fill the gaps and you are welcome to share these with us. You can do this by logging on to this site and submitting them, or by emailing us at either of the contacts below.Webmaster or Archivist
