New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players @ The Clayton Center
Feb 21 @ 8:00 pm

Take Gilbert & Sullivan, add a twist of Broadway and stir!

The New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players present I’ve got a little Twist, a one-of-a-kind show that proves the Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire is as fun, fresh and full-of-life as three little maids from school!

I’ve got a little Twist is where The Mikado meets The Music Man, where the HMS Pinafore sets sail for Brigadoon, and where The Pirates of Penzance take shore leave On the Town. In short, it’s where Broadway meets Gilbert & Sullivan.

See for yourself as New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players celebrates the legacy of Gilbert & Sullivan in American musical theater, featuring favorites from Rodgers & Hammerstein, Bernstein, Sondheim, Lerner & Loewe, Meredith Willson and Jerry Herman. Life is a cabaret and so is this show — and as we all know, it’s always more entertaining when you add a little twist.

Under the supervision of Artistic Director Albert Bergeret, I’ve Got a Little Twist is written and directed by David Auxier and features Daniel Greenwood, Sarah Caldwell Smith, Stephen Quint, Angela Christine Smith, David Wannen and Mr. Auxier. Mark York is the arranger, musical director and pianist.

Experience Gilbert & Sullivan like you’ve never heard them before!
