The Pirates Of Penzance

Event has passed.
Duration: 120 minutes

Multiple award-winning Hereford Gilbert and Sullivan Society returns to the stage at last to bring you arguably the most well-known and loved of all G&S operettas: The Pirates of Penzance.

Featuring such famous numbers as “I am the very model of a modern Major-General” and “When the Foeman bares his Steel”, the swashbuckling, topsy-turvy tale follows Frederic, a Pirate’s apprentice indentured to the Pirate King until his twenty-first birthday – but there’s a catch! Frederic was born in a leap-year…

Put it all together with a nurse who’s hard of hearing, feisty Cornish maids, a crew of soft-hearted Pirates and a squad of bumbling policemen; what could possibly go wrong?

The Pirates of Penzance is a comedic jewel loved by audiences the world over. Whether a seasoned aficionado of operetta, or experiencing the hilarity for the first time, come aboard with us this March for a musical and theatrical extravaganza you won’t forget!
