Crosby Gilbert and Sullivan Society was formed in 1951 in Crosby, Liverpool. The society performed their first production of 'The Mikado'. Since then it has performed G&S productions at a variety of different venues across Liverpool. The first productions were hosted at The Winter Gardens Theatre, Waterloo (1951 - 1963) following this at The Crane Theatre, Liverpool. The company later moved from The Crane to the Neptune, and later from the Neptune to The Epstein. In early 2016, the society performed their final production at the Epstein Theatre; a production of 'The Gondoliers'. From 2017, the society will take up residence at Southport Little Theatre. This will see them bring a more updated version of the G&S operetta 'The Pirates of Penzance'.
