We are the Island’s only Gilbert & Sullivan troupe and also one of its oldest theater companies and oldest musical organizations. We’ve been entertaining Long Islanders since 1954, and having a great time doing it.
Have a look around the site, and chances are you’ll be almost as excited about the company as we are!
