Bringing some drama to Desert Springs

Bringing some drama to Desert Springs

Woburn Safari Park recently welcomed some of the cast from two upcoming local theatre productions.

The Zoo & HMS Pinafore

Wolverton Gilbert & Sullivan Society are celebrating their 40th anniversary with a special double bill of Sullivan theatre classics - The Zoo and HMS Pinafore.

To help the cast get into character, they visited the home of our loveable mob of meerkats, Desert Springs. 

 Heart Boats 1 Resized

'The Zoo' is a farcical tale concerning two pairs of lovers - a nobleman who eats himself stupid to woo the girl who runs the refreshment stall at the local zoo, and a young chemist who believes he’s poisoned his beloved!

Meanwhile, on the quarterdeck of H.M.S. Pinafore, Captain Corcoran and his crew await the coming of Sir Joseph Porter, who is going to inspect the ship and marry the Captain’s daughter, Josephine; but she plans to elope. As in many of the G&S operas, a surprise disclosure will change things dramatically! This show is a fitting anniversary celebration as it was the very first one performed by the society back in 1975.
