About us

Founded in 1951, The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Western Australia has produced over 50 productions of Gilbert & Sullivan’s extraordinary contribution to the musical theatre. Founded by Bernard Manning, the Society is a not-for-profit organisation supported by The Gilbert & Sullivan / AN Bullock Trust created in 1983 through the bequest of the late Arnold Bullock. Distinguished entertainer, Max Kay became the Patron of the Society after the late Sir Charles Court. Renowned directors and musical directors include John Milson, Ted Bull, Tony Howes, Justin Friend and Andrew Foote. Over seven decades, the Society has brought laughter and joy through the comedy and melody of WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan to generations of Western Australians.
