UTOPIANS UNLIMITED
A fundraising Gilbert & Sullivan group

The Utopians, founded in 1980, were originally a small concert party which has since morphed into a larger group of friends (hence the "unlimited").  We stage Gilbert & Sullivan shows in churches in Croydon and nearby boroughs for church fundraising and enjoyment.

Our productions are costumed and lit, with the music and dialogue performed by a dedicated core group of principals and chorus, with additional chorus singers (the choir), often from the church at which the performance is taking place.  The onstage cast work very hard to learn and perfect the production and the offstage backing provided by the choir is an essential and unique part of the production.

Of course, we cannot put on the shows without the support of the churches involved and we hope we can help them to raise funds whilst doing what we love.

We have no constitution or rules and welcome all those who love singing / performing.  Rehearsals are on Monday evenings in the Purley area.  If you would like to know more about us, or better still, to take part in our shows, either on or off stage, please contact our Musical Director, David Edwards.  Details above.
