Summary
How do you save a good man who’s wrongly accused and facing the ax in 24 hours? That’s how high the stakes are in Gilbert and Sullivan’s funny, pun-filled musical that mines a richer emotional world than the duo’s other comic operettas. Bristling with bad cases of unrequited love, a prison break and plots running amok, this world-premiere adaptation inspired by classic country-and-western music makes for a rousing musical event the whole family will enjoy. The Yeomen of the Guard is an immersive 80-minute performance. Throughout the show, audience members in the Promenade section will be onstage among the actors, occasionally using scenic elements as temporary seating. Traditional fixed-seat ticket holders may also be invited to join the fun onstage. Any shopping bags, backpacks, bulky purses, and heavy coats will need to be stored with the house staff during the performance. To learn more about Promenade Ticketing, watch this short video.
