G&S WA is thrilled (and chilled!) to present Ruddigore a spellbinding seaside gothic by the masters of musical comedy.
Shy and law-abiding gentleman farmer Robin Oakapple is working up the courage to ask the virtuous Rose Maybud to marry him.
However he holds a dark secret – he is actually Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd the cursed Baronet of Ruddigore who fled to escape his fate consigning his younger brother Despard to a life of dastardly deeds.
When his true identity is revealed by a jealous rival Robin / Ruthven is compelled to commit a crime every day – or face an agonising death. Will he be able to break free from the witch’s curse?
Directed by Alan Needham (The Pirates of Penzance Patience) with Musical Direction by Michael Brett (The Grand Duke The Pirates of Penzance) this production showcases the marvellous music from Arthur Sullivan and WS Gilbert’s most witty and weird characters. Don’t miss this irreverent tale featuring romantic rivalries hidden identities and a family of phantasms!
