Welcome to the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda




The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda is proud to announce that its production for 2018 will be “Annie”. The Society’s last production of “Annie” was in 1992 starring Rebecca Faulkenberry as 'Molly'. Rebecca is now a Broadway actress.

Set in 1930s New York during The Great Depression, brave young Annie is forced to live a life of misery at Miss Hannigan’s orphanage. Her luck soon changes when she's chosen to spend a fairytale Christmas with famous billionaire, Oliver Warbucks. Meanwhile, spiteful Miss Hannigan has other ideas and hatches a plan to spoil Annie’s search for her true family…

With its Tony® award-winning book and score, including the unforgettable songs It’s The Hard-Knock LifeEasy Street and Tomorrow, this is a show not to be missed!

Auditions will be held June 1-3. We will be looking for two Annie’s and female orphans from ages 8-12, as well as junior and adult ensemble members and of course the adult cast. We will also be looking for Sandy, the infamous dog. To reserve an audition time, please contact our Producer, Deborah Smith-Joell at 735-1547 or email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

G&S will be looking for a place to build our magnificent set for Annie. If you know of a place or someone that might have a location available to build the set (September 1-26), please contact Deborah Smith-Joell.

The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda is getting set to present ‘The Wizard of Oz’ in October, with auditions for the show to be held from June 2 to 4.

A spokesperson said, “The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda is delighted to announce that it will be producing The Wizard of Oz between Thursday October 5 through Saturday October 14 at the Earl Cameron Theatre in City Hall.

“Following the success of last year’s production of The Magic of The Musicals, the Society had a very difficult task to select a worthy successor to that production. After much deliberation, the Society chose The Wizard of Oz.

“This is a much loved musical, in which a Kansas farm girl travels over the rainbow to discover the magical power of home. The musical has been entertaining audiences for generations.

“This production features such well known songs as “Over The Rainbow”, “Munchkinland [Ding Dong The Witch is Dead”, ”If I Only Had A Brain/A Heart/The Nerve”, “We’re Off To See The Wizard [Follow The Yellow Brick Road]”, “The Jitterbug” and “The Merry Old Land of Oz”, plus a few new songs.

“The production will give the audience the opportunity of seeing what promises to be an outstanding set, designed by Cleo Pettitt. Cleo has designed sets for such G&S shows as Pirates of Penzance, South Pacific, Jesus Christ Superstar and Oliver! She has been challenged to ensure The Yellow Brick Road leads to a successful and memorable show.

John Barnett, president of the Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s executive committee, said: “For 57 years, G&S has brought a wide range of hit musicals and concerts to the stage in Bermuda. This year, we wanted to produce a musical which was very well known and which would give many young people in Bermuda the opportunity to be on the stage for the first time.

“The Wizard of Oz fulfills that objective as we expect to have two teams of 20 young people performing on alternate nights, as we did for The Magic of The Musicals. This will mean that we will be looking for talented young people [over the age of 8] who will become Munchkins for 10 days”.

“Auditions for this memorable show will be held on Friday June 2 to Sunday June 4. In addition to adults and young people we will be scouring Bermuda to find a Cairns Terrier to play the part of Toto.

“Please contact Deborah Smith-Joell at 735-1547 for audition dates and times.”
