The Pirates of Penzance
by Gilbert & Sullivan
21st – 23rd October 2021
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?
