The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan

Ahoy, mateys!  This wacky high-seas Britcom has spelled family fun since the Victorian era.  Join the most unlikely band of pirates ever known as they sail through the clever wordplay and infectiously merry music G&S are known for!  Hum along (in your head, at least!) with the famous melodies and set your phasers on pun.  This madcap gem guarantees you’ll leave the theater singing!  Parrot and eye patch optional, but do dress up if you’re inspirrrrred!  (We arrrrrgh!)

Directed by John Hoomes
Conducted by Dean Williamson
Featuring the Nashville Opera Orchestra
Sung in English with projected English titles
