The Pirates of Penzance

July 21 – August 6, 2017
performing at Arcadia Charter School,
1719 Cannon Road, Northfield
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 bevy of beauties, a brash Pirate King, the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley and you’ve got an endearing evening of fun for the entire family.
Directed by Bob Gregory-Bjorklund
with musical direction by Daniel Kallman and choreography by Shari Setchell
