The Pirates of Penzance
Directed by Diane Garton Edie & Jeffrey Sykes
Welcome aboard, matey! Join in the fun as the Pirate King, Ruth, and Frederic meet Mabel and the Major General for some olde English merriment. Romance blossoms, loyalty is put to the test and mistakes are forgiven in this "jolly good" adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic masterpiece.
With its zany word play and physical comedy, The Pirates of Penzance is an excellent springboard for discussion of time-honored values such as honesty, integrity, and respect for commitment.
Sixteen students from each school will perform on stage as the chorus of rollicking pirates, carefree wards, and timid police constables.
Produced by Opera for the Young at schools across the upper Midwest!
Performances: October 7, 2010 - May 1, 2011
