The Pirates of Penzance

Orphaned pirates, flat-footed policemen, a bevy of blushing maidens and the pretty daughter of Major General Stanley – all the ingredients for a fabulous recipe of Gilbert and Sullivan at their very best. This most topsy turvy of all G&S plots leads us through the swashbuckling world of young Frederic, the pirate apprentice, who was born on February 29 in a leap year and therefore won’t come of age until he is 84! Cast includes Owen Pullar (Frederick), Elsie Bennett (Mabel), Guy Mott (Pirate King); Roger Parkins (Major-General) and Callum Hale (Sergeant). Directed by Matt Harrison; accompanied on piano by musical director André Refig.
