Gilbert & Sullivan

Gilbert and Sullivan

  • Gilbert & Sullivan musicals have long been a tradition at single sex schools and here at Allen-Stevenson, we rotate four of the best:  HMS Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe and Patience.  Gilbert and Sullivan shows are accessible, clever and sufficiently silly for our boys.  The vocal range suits the voice ranges perfectly so that boys in the Fifth through Eighth Grades can all participate with the younger unchanged male voices handling the female roles and the more mature voices in the male roles.  The significant chorus required for these shows gives every boy who wants one an opportunity to participate.

Allen-Stevenson’s distinctive “enlightened traditional” approach educates boys to become scholars and gentlemen.
