Pirates with sentimental hearts, blundering policeman, crazy adventures and improbable paradoxes.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic ‘Pirates of Penzance’ is filled with fun and laughter.
Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley.
On his 21st birthday Frederic is finally due to be released from his apprenticeship. But…..being born on 29 February, a leap year, Frederic discovers that he is technically still way off being 21 years and therefore still bound in his apprenticeship to the Pirate King.
Although very much in love, he is dedicated to his duty and so remains with the Pirates, this action causes all sorts of complications and hilarity with Pirates versus Policemen. But who will triumph? And will Mabel and Frederic find a way to be with one another?
We are really excited to be performing ‘Carousel’ in October, following our re-branding to Bournemouth GaSP from Bournemouth Gilbert & Sullivan Society. This will be our re-launch show and so will be exciting for all involved.
‘Carousel’ is a giant of the musical stage and remains timeless and starbright. The story of faithful Julie and her brutish husband Billy is one of the most powerful books of the musical theatre and perfectly matches its extraordinary score.
Featuring the world famous song “You’ll never walk alone”and the romantic “If I loved you” your sure to come away wanting more.
