The Clevedon Gilbert and Sullivan Society will perform The Gondoliers for its 47th production.

The show first premiered in December 1889 in the Savoy Theatre and has been performed 554 times before it closed two years later.

The society will bring this classic back to life with laughter and fun from tonight (Wednesday) to Saturday.

Two regular guys, Giuseppe and Marco, are working as gondoliers.

They are just going about their daily business when two girls, Gianette and Tessa, come along and announce one of them is actually the crowned prince of Barataria.

They must now wait for the prince’s former nurse to arrive and identify the rightful ruler.

The show, at the Princes Hall, in Princes Road, at 7.30pm each night.

Tickets, priced £6-11, are available at www.ticketsource.co.uk
