PIRATES OF PENZANCE
Pioneers in their crafts, W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan are regarded as one of the greatest comic and musical writing teams in history! Gilbert's talent of wordplay weaving fantasy with reality and Sullivan's unparalleled flair marrying music and text, brought this show it's many performances around the world. Gilbert & Sullivan emphasis on wit, irony, and poking fun at the establishment from within managed to be both disrespectful of authority and at the same time get easily comfortable and urbane. 


This operetta, The Pirates of Penzance (or The Slave of Duty), is about a young man named Frederick, the son of a wealthy 19th century man who wants to be apprenticed as a pilot, but due to a hard-of-hearing nursery maid, was instead indentured to a band pirates! Not just any pirates, but the not-so-fierce "Pirates of Penzance." After twenty-one years, his indentures conclude and Frederick's sense of duty calls him to rid the seas of these rather simple ruffians. Featuring classic songs such as "I am a Pirate King," "With Cat-Like Tread," and "I am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General," The Pirates of Penzance is sure to charm the ear and tickle the funny bone!

This timeless operetta planted the seeds for modern musical theater, Monty Python, Looney Tunes, The Simpsons, and countless others! Don't miss out on this "glorious thing!"
