The Off-Monroe Players — Rochester's Gilbert and Sullivan company — will present "The Yeomen of the Guard" as its spring production. In this tale of the Tower of London and its famed Yeomen guards, the stage is set with the wrongful accusation and imprisonment of one Colonel Fairfax. Various efforts by his friend, Sergeant Meryll, to spring him from the Tower result in significant shenanigans and tomfoolery, with both true love and mercenary marriage thrown into the mix. The operetta is directed by Don Kelley and David Odgers, with musical direction from Marcia Sheremeta. All of Off-Monroe Players productions are free to the public, with donations from patrons and showgoers supporting the shows.
The Off-Monroe Players' "Yeomen of the Guard" runs for two weekends from Friday, May 8 to Sunday, May 17, at Salem United Church of Christ, 60 Bittner Street. 7:30 on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Free. off-monroeplayers.org.
