THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE

Director: Brendan Hartnett • Music Director: Richard Nechamkin

Concerts October 22 - November 6, 2022 • Performances November 10-13, 2022

Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular show, The Pirates of Penzance, is a rollicking, delightfully funny tale of a band of soft-tempered pirates, bumbling police officers, and a bevy of beautiful maidens. Mistakenly apprenticed to a pirate by his nursemaid Ruth as a child, the handsome Frederic is now twenty-one and, though quite fond of the group of joyous and fun-loving pirates, chooses to abandon his profession to dedicate himself instead to their eradication. Shortly after leaving them, he encounters a gaggle of beautiful maidens (one of whom, Mabel, steals his heart) and their father, the eccentric Major-General. Just as Frederic is ready to lead a band of lily-livered policemen to take out the Pirate King and his men, a secret is uncovered that will change his fate forever. Beloved since its premiere in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance is a delightful farce of a classic that is fun for all ages.
