The Pirates of Penzance

10th Jul 2011 - 3:30pm

The Arts Centre

Illyria present The Pirates of Penzance at the Rose Theatre.

Tickets £14.00 / £12.00 concessions.

Illyria delivers yet another first for the UK open-air touring theatre circuit: Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic opera about an apprentice pirate, born on 29th February, who learns he is contracted to the pirates until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. The show is packed with laughter, romance and a galleon – full of memorable lyrics such as “To be a Pirate King!”; “Modern Major General” and “A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One”.

This wonderful operetta gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed by a cast of seven and accompanied by a Musical Director on keyboard and actor/musicians on various instruments.

The production will be performed outdoors so please come prepared. We suggest, a low backed chair or rug, sun cream, suitable clothing for the elements and a rain hat and coat (hopefully you won’t need either).

Complimentary light refreshments will be provided, but you may also bring a picnic if you wish.
