About this show

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 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.
