THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE

April 29 – May 14, 2022
By Gilbert and Sullivan
Directed by Paige Fossheim, Music Direction by Winnifred Hume, Choreography by Karen Iwanski

Strike up the band for one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most beloved operettas! The Pirates of Penzance combines whimsy, light-hearted satire and piratical characters with stirring music, including the iconic “Major-General’s Song”. This is the play that cemented the comic-pirate theme in popular culture, a theme that has lasted through more than a century and spawned countless movies and novels. Jam-packed with sentimental, swashbuckling pirates, a completely dotty Major General and a bumbling bunch of hopeless but hilarious policemen, what could possibly go wrong?  To add to the topsy-turvy nature of G&S, Morpheus will be flipping the genders of all your favourite characters.
