From New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players-

THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE IN ONE ACT AND AN EVENING OF GILBERT AND SULLIVAN FAVORITES!

A sextet of stars of New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players and pianist perform The Pirates of Penzance in one act, with all of the famous numbers by all your favorite characters -dressed to the nines in piratical and Victorian splendor. Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history.

On the coast of Cornwall, a band of tenderhearted pirates celebrates the coming of age of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. Now, Frederic has vowed to devote his life to the extermination of piracy – until a ludicrous leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to the pirates for life! Throw in a brash Pirate King and the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley and you’ve got what The New York Times calls “AN ENDEARING PRODUCTION WITH HIGH MUSICAL STANDARDS AND SPIRITED PERFORMANCES.”

After intermission, the performers return in black tie and gowns to entertain the audience with many selections from the full repertoire of Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic operas– including our signature section- impromptu audience requests!

Unleash your inner pirate and set sail for a fun filled night of romance, comedy and adventure! This rollicking masterpiece of musical theatre is performed by the renowned New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players, delivering the famous music that has made this work so beloved, delivered with a modern sense of humor well suited to anyone experiencing the show for the first time."
