G&S Cape Town will screen Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera, Trial By Jury, online from Friday September 11. Trial By Jury is the second online show streamed by the community theatre organisation to raise funds and was staged at the Artscape in 2017. The story concerns a “breach of promise of marriage” lawsuit in which the judge and legal system are the objects of light-hearted satire.
“We are very excited to launch the online streaming of past shows and operas, and treat our audiences to some whole-hearted entertainment during this tough time,” says Marius Steyn, chairperson of the Cape Town G&S executive board. The online streaming of Trial By Jury will launch at 8pm on Friday September 11 and will be available until 11pm on Saturday September 19. Tickets cost R65 through Quicket.
