Baltimore's summertime favorite. Young Vic is a summer repertory theatre dedicated to the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. With a professional orchestra, choreography and staging, we attract the best in young musical talent from across the nation.
Welcome to Arcadia, where the popular fairy Iolanthe returns from banishment to her fairy sisters. Her half-fairy son Strephon has his eye on Phyllis, a beautiful mortal, but a misunderstanding leads Phyllis to reject him. The rebuff sparks a full-scale fairy uprising. The fairy Queen decrees Strephon to enter Parliament where his political changes blanche the establishment and create political pandemonium. If you've ever watched House of Cards, then you may find Iolanthe to be all that, and much more!
It's quick and it's easy. Select seats on the auditorium map and then pay by credit card. You can print your tickets, have them mailed (after June 1) or just pick up them at the box office.
The auditorium aisles require navigating steps and there are limited wheelchair spaces. If you need any assistance, call our box office to help you choose an appropriate seat.
The Young Victorian Theatre Company is Baltimore's beloved Gilbert & Sullivan musical theatre company. Now in our fifth decade, we have grown from a group of high school students into a full-fledged performing arts organization that regularly garners praise from audiences and the media.
Artistically esteemed and fiscally stable, Young Vic is committed to producing professional-level productions of the G&S canon. We're Baltimore’s longest tenured musical theatre and part of our mission is to attract young people to this art form, either in the seats or onstage in a production.
