UMGASS Presents: The Yeomen of the Guard
Join UMGASS for our fall production of The Yeomen of the Guard!

This G&S classic tells the story of a Colonel imprisoned in the Tower of London, and his eventual escape. Phoebe Meryll, who is in love with Colonel Fairfax, and her father hatch a plan to spring him from his cell and disguise him as Leonard, Phoebe's brother and a newly appointed yeoman. Wilfred, a jailer who is in love with Phoebe is instrumental in their plan.

But everything changes when Jack Point and Elsie Maynard, two traveling performers come to town. They are approached by Sir Richard Cholmondeley, a friend of Fairfax's, who arranges for Elsie to marry Fairfax before his execution so his estate will not be inherited by the evil Sir Clarence Poltwhistle. Although Jack is in love with Elsie, he agrees, since Fairfax will be dead soon anyway.

But these two plans can't work together, and much hilarity and confusion ensues when the two plots collide. Our production will be a faithful, energetic retelling of this whirlwind story, and we hope you'll join us in the Lydia Mendelsson Theatre December 5th-8th to share the experience with us!
