Surreal comedy meets genuinely spooky chiller in this unmissable production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s RUDDIGORE, or The Witch’s Curse.

'The director of this is touched with genius' – GYLES BRANDRETH

Directed by Peter Benedict (Mapp & Lucia – The Musical and Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards!), expect all the familiar G&S elements: terrific music, cheeky social satire, comic pathos and people singing faster than you’d think humanly possible - but with a seasoning of sinister spectres.

A family curse means a baronet must commit a crime every day or perish. In trying to escape his fate, he encounters dancing sailors, a bunch of frustrated bridesmaids and a chorus of ghosts. What could possibly go wrong?

In this innovative production, audiences should be prepared for plenty of laughs and spine-tingling moments. Those who are familiar with RUDDIGORE are also in for a few surprises, both visual and musical…

Oracle Productions have presented classic theatre and new writing in the West End and Off Broadway as well as touring major venues across the UK and overseas for the British Council

'Magnificent. Wilton’s Music Hall, a gloriously faded Victorian theatre in east London, makes an ideal setting for a revival of Ruddigore.' Patrick KiddThe Times Diary Editor

★★★★ 'An evening of great fun in one of the world's oldest surviving music halls' Daily Express
