The Coily Dart Theatre Company Gilbert and Sullivan's Improbable New Musical: ...and Helen

Musicals & Opera


In an afterlife, Gilbert and Sullivan decide to acknowledge Helen Carte’s contribution to their legacy. They create a new comic operetta based upon her life, though Gilbert insists on adding a few plot twists! The show highlights Helen’s diplomacy (appeasing their many arguments), her sharp business acumen (ensuring the operettas’ longevity) and her vision in shaping modern theatre. Remarkable achievements for a Victorian woman! Coily Dart create new stories with original G&S songs. Awards for previous productions include a Broadway World nomination for Best Musical Production, and Fringe sell-out status.
