Strike up the band for one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most beloved operettas! The Pirates of Penzance combines whimsy, light-hearted satire and piratical characters with stirring music, including the iconic “Major-General’s Song”. This is the play that cemented the comic-pirate theme in popular culture, a theme that has lasted through more than a century and spawned countless movies and novels. Jam-packed with sentimental, swashbuckling pirates, a completely dotty Major General and a bumbling bunch of hopeless but hilarious policemen, what could possibly go wrong?

You won’t want to miss this version, where Abel falls in love with Frederique; the matronly Major General corrals her strapping young wards; and the Pirate Queen and her lady pirates swashbuckle their way through “Cat-Like Tread”. To add to the excitement, the whole show is accompanied with a magnificent full orchestra!
