Peter Benedict's smash hit production of Gilbert & Sullivan's RUDDIGORE at Wilton's Music Hall must end this Saturday, 25th March. Check out production photos below!

Surreal comedy meets genuinely spooky Victorian chiller in this unmissable production of Gilbert & Sullivan's RUDDIGORE or "The Witch's Curse".

Directed by Peter Benedict (Mapp & Lucia - The Musical and Terry Pratchett's Guards! Guards!), expect all the familiar G&S elements: terrific music, cheeky social satire, comic pathos and a sensational cast singing faster than you'd think humanly possible, but with a seasoning of sinister spectres.

Wilton's Music Hall with its faded Victorian grandeur, lends itself to a tale of ancestral ghosts who haunt the family picture gallery, and this innovative production will provide some spine-tingling moments amidst the laughs. Those who are familiar with Ruddigore are also in for a few visual and musical surprises.

Written as a glorious send up of Victorian melodrama, this new staging draws on a love of classic Hammer movies, which were sometimes more fun than frightening. Sullivan's irresistible melodies and Gilbert's outrageously topsy-turvy twists, barmy characters and quirky humour makes Ruddigore the perfect homage to the genre. Don't miss!
