“TV stars support ALGSS in return to Watford Palace”
Langley locals have always known how good Abbots Langley Gilbert & Sullivan Society are, but it seems that their reputation has spread far and wide since their success at the 2004 Buxton International G&S Festival.
Well known TV stars have pledged their support with messages of good luck as ALGSS return to the Watford Palace Theatre (14th-19th February) with The Yeomen of the Guard. Celebrities including top comedy writer, Jimmy Perry OBE of ‘Dads Army’, ‘Hi-de-Hi’ & ‘It ain’t Half Hot Mum’ fame, Tamzin Outhwaite (Eastenders), Paul Whitehouse (The Fast Show), Arthur Bostrom (Crabtree in ‘Allo ‘Allo) and Colin Baker (Dr Who) have put their weight behind the international award winning performers by sending photographs and messages which will be presented within the show programme.
ALGSS publicity coordinator, Eve Rapley is astonished at the amount of support the society has received saying, “It is brilliant for us that leading actors and performers want to help us in this way; it’s a real boost for everyone associated with the group. We are really excited about going back to the Palace and have just heard that we have been invited to take the show to Buxton again in August. Things are just getting better and better!”.
Portrayed in medieval times at the Tower of London, The Yeomen of the Guard is a tale of heartbreak and despair. Set against a backdrop of wonderful music, it is a real treat and is not to be missed.
