About the Players

Formed on 29 February 1988, the MIT Gilbert & Sullivan Players is a volunteer group of students and non-students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA) that performs the works of Sir William S. Gilbert and/or Sir Arthur Sullivan. MITG&SP occasionally performs other works, usually with some connection to Gilbert and Sullivan or the Victorian era.

Spring 2014: Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse

Young Robin Oakapple and sweet Rose Maybud are in love but too shy to tell each other, until Robin's foster-brother Richard woos her himself.
