A brand new production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Ruddigore, or the Witch’s Curse comes to HOTA in Surfers Paradise this winter. Make sure not to miss it by booking our Main Beach resort near Surfers Paradise today!

Ruddigore, or the Witch’s Curse is a lighthearted opera for the whole family, featuring a talented cast of performers, an immersive Victorian setting, and musical numbers that will have you bobbing your head along from start to finish. After being introduced to seemingly normal farmer Robin Oakapple who marries the girl of his dreams, Rose Maybud, the tale then takes a dark turn featuring witches, ghosts, and a terrible curse that plagues Ruddigore. Centuries before, a persecuted witch laid her curse upon all the Baronets of Ruddigore, which forces all Baronet descendants to commit a horrible crime each day, unless they wish to meet a gruesome death. When it’s revealed Robin Oakapple is part of this cursed lineage, all mayhem breaks loose, and it’s not only thrilling to watch but comical and rewarding for all ages.

Created by Arthur Sullivan and W. S. Gilbert, Ruddigore, or the Witch’s Curse has proved to be one of their most celebrated works, and one that is still performed on the worldwide stage to this day.

Featuring catchy musical numbers, stunning set design, and a superb all-star cast, this brand new production of Ruddigore, or the Witch’s Curse by Lindy Hume is a sensational show for the whole family, and will have you cheering and laughing long after it ends. Don’t miss it with three unmissable performances taking place at HOTA in Surfers Paradise on August 3 and August 4!
