    • Hi Frances,

      Our evening performances are on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of February, with an additional matinee performance on the 25th. You will be able contact the box office at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre for more information or to book your tickets soon, however they aren’t currently available for purchase. We will be posting both on here and on our Facebook fan page as soon as our tickets go on sale. Fear not, they will definitely be available by Christmas (and we heartily approve of your taste in presents!).


  1. Fantastic. My wife and I have had immense pleasure in going to all but one of the University’s G & S productions. They have always been a joy and have been getting better and better – year on year. Looking forward to February. We wish you all every SUCCESS at The Rowntree Theatre.
    Tony and Ann Gregory.
