Leeds G&S Society is probably the country's oldest and best Gilbert & Sullivan society based in the heart of Leeds. We perform two main shows per year, with additional concerts throughout. We perform both Musical Theatre and Light Opera. Tickets to our shows can be bought through the City Centre box office or through any member of the society.

SMALLER AUTUMN PRODUCTIONS
Following the huge success of Jimmy Robert's I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, Leeds G&S Society branched out into Musical Theatre. Most notably we have performed:
- Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods which won LCAG Best Musical Production 2015
- Rachel Sheinkin's 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
- Jerry Bock's She Loves Me
In 2018 we performed Closer Than Ever, the rarely performed musical revue by Maltby & Shire.
Our history is steeped in Light Opera - in fact we were first known as Hunslet St Silas Choral and Operatic Society in 1909. For 50 years between 1954 and 2014 we mostly performed Gilbert & Sullivan operettas. Out most recent shows include The Pirates of Penzance, Patience and Offenbach's Orpheus In The Underworld in 2016. We have just completed a run of an exciting new production - a brand new Gilbert & Sullivan show written by local writer and director Sarah Case.
We have started rehearsals for Guys & Dolls, but we are always interested in hearing from potential new members, performing and back-stage.
