The Pirates of Penzance

Here’s your chance to get carried away by Pirates! Join the band of swashbuckling buccaneers, bumbling British bobbies, frolicsome Victorian maidens, and the delightfully dotty “model of a modern Major-General” for a rollicking romp over the rocky coast of Cornwall.

Here’s your chance to get carried away by Pirates! Join the band of swashbuckling buccaneers, bumbling British bobbies, frolicsome Victorian maidens, and the delightfully dotty “model of a modern Major-General” for a rollicking romp over the rocky coast of Cornwall. This exuberant musical theatre masterpiece is performed in its original format by the always entertaining New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players.. The production resonates with classic elegance and power, while the company’s vibrancy, energy and contemporary sense of humor keep the show alive and exciting to a modern audience. First performed in New York City in 1879, Gilbert’s wit (always incisive but never vicious) and Sullivan’s memorable score are among the most valuable treasures of musical theatre history.
