Pirates of Penzance: A new adaptation for young players

22 Sep 2023 to 29 Sep 2023

A pirate ship is becalmed at sea, and so to entertain themselves, the pirates stage a musical on their decks. And what musical do they perform?  Why, The Pirates of Penzance of course!! 

 

Come aboard to follow our merry pirate band as they tell the story of Frederic (a ‘slave of duty’), who is apprenticed to the Pirate King (‘Hurrah!’). Upon turning 21, Frederic shall be released from his pirate ‘indentures’, and longs to lead an honest life. As he seeks his freedom he comes across a ‘bevy of beautiful maidens’, the daughters of Major-General Stanley (‘the very model of a modern Major-General’). One of these maidens is Mabel (‘take heart!’), with whom he falls in love. Frederic is ready to see his pirate mates captured by the police (‘Tarantara!’), however an awkward obstacle is revealed to him by his former nurse, and pirate maid, Ruth (‘a paradox!’): Frederic was born on the 29th of February, and thus is not technically 21 years, but only 5! As a man bound by his sense of duty, Frederic pledges to return to the pirates until he has seen 21 birthdays, and Mabel agrees to wait for him for another 63 years! Join the pirate crew to see how the ending unfolds!
