Victorian Ghosts Will Walk In RUDDIGORE At Wilton's Music Hall Next Month

Performances run 14th - 25th March 2023.

Victorian Ghosts Will Walk In RUDDIGORE At Wilton's Music Hall Next Month

Surreal comedy meets genuinely spooky Victorian chiller in an unmissable production of Gilbert & Sullivan's RUDDIGORE or, The Witch's Curse, at Wilton's Music Hall from 14th to 25th March 2023 - in just a few weeks' time.

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 spine-tingling moments amidst the laughs.

Take a step back in time and experience Benedict's hilariously haunting take on Gilbert and Sullivan's tenth collaboration featuring some visual and musical surprises.

A family curse means a baronet must commit a crime every day or perish. In trying to escape his fate, he encounters dancing sailors, a bunch of frustrated bridesmaids and a chorus of ghosts. What could possibly go wrong?

Don't miss this truly magical experience performed in London's oldest Victorian music hall from 14th March 2023.

Age: suitable for 12+

Full casting and creative team to be announced.
