ABOUT THE SHOW

Join the Harvard-Radcliffe Gilbert and Sullivan Players for their Spring 2018 production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s masterwork! Phoebe Meryll pines for Colonel Fairfax, who has been unjustly sentenced to death. Phoebe and her father, Sergeant Meryll, devise a plan to save the young man’s life by disguising him as her brother, Leonard. When a duo of entertainers arrive on the scene, Meryll’s plans go awry. Romance, comedy, and drama ensue in Yeomen of the Guard; or, The Merryman and His Maid!
