WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Lamplighters celebrate the leap year birthday of Frederic, the Pirate Apprentice, with our audiences' favorite quadrennial event: The Pirates of Penzance Singalong!
Wacky, irreverent, and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened in 1879, Gilbert & Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance follows the story of an orphan boy who was mistakenly apprenticed to a pirate instead of a pilot. A hilarious farce featuring sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dewy-eyed daughters, and an eccentric Major General, and peppered with unforgettable melodies and tongue-twisting songs such as I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General and Poor Wandering One, Pirates is one of the most popular operettas ever written.
Everyone is encouraged to sing any or all parts! Come in costume, or come as ye are. Prizes for the best costumes. Arrr!!!
