The Pirates of Penzance

Director Nicholas Renfree-Marks and Musical Director Trevor Henley will take us on an Adventure on the high seas! Set sail for one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular hits, the irrepressible, irresponsible, but irresistible Pirates of Penzance!

Arguably one of the world’s most adored and applauded operettas, this madcap melee of maidens fair and feisty, pirates rum-filled and rumbustious, police crafty but cowardly and a sweetheart who’s a slave to duty, showcases Gilbert & Sullivan at their best and brightest - a consistent fan favourite for music-lovers worldwide.
