THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE by Gilbert & Sullivan
Frederick, apprenticed to the Pirates since a child, learns that he was born in a leap year on 29th February, and that he is contracted to the Pirate King until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. With only the inept Penzance constabulary to protect him, how will he resist being forced to endure a life of crime until he is 84 – and will his sweetheart, Mabel, wait for him that long?
With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, “The Pirates of Penzance” is as fresh as if it had been written today. It is packed-full of memorable songs such as “To be a Pirate King!”; “Modern Major General” and “A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One”.
Come rain or shine, please bring a chair, all-weather clothing (but no view-blocking umbrellas please) and a picnic and enjoy the show! Thank you.
The Cafe is open for 30 mins before each performance, and during the interval, serving hot and cold drinks, cakes, ice cream & crisps.
Many of the courtyard shops will also be open at these times, some offering special on-the-day theatre discounts.
