The acclaimed New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players (NYGASP) theatre company will present its  show I’ve Got A Little Twist Saturday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m. on stage at Tryon Fine Arts Center. The show, subtitled Where Broadway Meets Gilbert & Sullivan, is renowned for adding creative twists to classic theatre performances.

“This will be the first performance of 2020 in our Signature Series,” Center Executive Director Marianne Carruth said. “This series is known for presenting the best that the fine art world has to offer with innovative approaches to traditional disciplines. 

The show will also give audiences insight into how the work of Gilbert and Sullivan (1871-1896) has greatly influenced modern-day Broadway theatre.As a theatre company, NYGASP was founded in 1974 and is considered to be America’s preeminent professional Gilbert and Sullivan repertory ensemble, having presented more than 2,000 shows throughout North America and the United Kingdom. 

 Curruth cautions: Don’t let the notion that you’ll be hearing ‘opera’ scare you off. Gilbert and Sullivan’s operettas — short operas — are among the funnest in the world. Plus, this show includes songs from Brigadoon, The Music Man, and On the Town — all Broadway classics. And, it’s funny. Even if you’re not a Broadway or Gilbert and Sullivan fan, anyone can appreciate the creative comedy of I’ve Got A Little Twist.

Standard reserved seats are $35 each; premium, $40. They can be purchased online at TryonArts.org. This is show is sponsored by WWE Realty; the season sponsor is Parsec Financial.More information about Tryon Fine Arts Center programs is available online at TryonArts.org or by calling 828-859-8322.
