The Grand Duke

Fri 21st June 2019 - Sat 29th June 2019
Cottingham Civic Hall, Cottingham, HU16 5QG
For the first time in their 85 year history, The Hull Savoyards present THE GRAND DUKE, by Gilbert and Sullivan

This exciting new setting moves the action to America’s Old West and the small, isolated town of Pfennig-Halbpfennig, led by the intractable and grumpy Sherif Rudolph, the ‘Grand Duke’. A local theatre troupe take it upon themselves to overthrow the despot and replace him with their manager, Ernest Dumkopf, but things don’t go to plan. Instead, Ludwig, their leading comedian, ends up in the role and married to four women at the same time, with hilarious consequences!

Featuring shot-gun weddings, card games and duels at high noon, this show promises to be a great night out for all the family.
