The Pirates of Penzance

Lock up your daughters, the pirates are coming to town! Peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs, The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular operettas ever written. So it's high time for a new production from the top-notch team headed by director Stuart Maunder. It promises to be a riot the moment the ship reaches shore.

In spite of being apprenticed to a Pirate King as a child, Frederic has led a very sheltered life. So when he arrives in Penzance with his boisterous shipmates, there are a few surprises in store for him! It all ends happily, but not before he's dodged the Old Bill, fallen in love and made some rather inconvenient discoveries. Anthony Warlow stars as the soft-centred Pirate King.
