MORRISTOWN — Celebrate the legacy of Gilbert and Sullivan in American musical theater, featuring favorites from Rodgers and Hammerstein, Bernstein, Sondheim, Lerner and Lowe and more in “I’ve Got a Little Twist” on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2012 at the Mayo Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $27 and $37

"I’ve Got a Little Twist" is a one-of-a-kind show that proves the Gilbert and Sullivan repertoire is as fun, fresh, and full-of-life as, well, three little maids from school! It’s where The Mikado meets The Music Man. Where the HMS Pinafore sets sail for Brigadoon. Where The Pirates of Penzance take shore leave On the Town. Life is a cabaret and so is this show — and as we all know, it’s always more entertaining when you add a little twist.

New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players (NYGASP) was founded in 1974 by Artistic Director and General Manager Albert Bergeret. His highly energized vision of Gilbert and Sullivan canon, combined with a dedicated corps of repertory singers, comic actors, and musicians, yields an ensemble with a unique style and flair. Remaining true to the intentions of the creators, the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players' stagings aim to communicate the inherent humor and pathos of the situations and characters to a modern musical theatre audience, whether long time Gilbert and Sullivan fans or not.
