Pirates of Penzance is a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers and an eccentric Major-General.

Set sail with this updated version of one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular comic operetta’s, which took New York by storm as a 1980’s Broadway smash hit!

Gilbert & Sullivan’s brilliant farce follows young Frederic, who has been mistakenly apprenticed to a raucous, but secretly softhearted band of pirates. When Frederic falls for the Major-General’s daughter, Mabel, he disavows the pirates’ way of life. However, the Pirate King uncovers an “ingenious paradox” to prevent Frederic from leaving his Pirate duty. With the cowardly police no match for the swashbuckling pirates, can love save them all?
