Gilbert and Sullivan operetta The Mikado at Wembury Village Hall
IF YOU enjoy watching or even taking part in Gilbert and Sullivan operettas, and particularly The Mikado, you need to come along to Wembury Village Hall on Saturday, March 2 at 7.30pm, where local baritone Mark Boocock has organised a sing-through of some of the work's best-loved numbers, followed by an informal performance later the same evening.
This is, in fact, the fourth event of its kind, which Mark has put on every two years, in order to raise funds for the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association, a genetic disorder from which his young grandson suffers.
Previous productions have included Trial By Jury, HMS Pinafore, and The Pirates of Penzance, where his grandson took a minor-role himself, as a junior flag-waving member of the pirate band (see picture).
Emphasising the evening's essentially light-hearted nature, Mark commented: "We'll have about 40 minutes of rehearsal with the audience, then 20 minutes or so for a glass of wine or similar, and then follow this with the performance!"
