The Pirates of Penzance with image of a village, a pirate ship in the background and a few characters in the foreground

Pirates of Penzance

Person Theatre and Live-streamed

This show will be offered in person (ticketed) and online (un-ticketed). Please visit the Box Office link for tickets and visit this page for the live stream on the day and time of the event.

Don’t miss raucous pirates, bumbling police, and irrepressible sisters, clashing, chasing, and romancing on the shores of Penzance. A wily major general, a hapless sergeant, and a tempestuous pirate couple fight over an innocent young lad with an unfortunate birthday. Sparkling familiar tunes abound in this modern and gorgeous new production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s masterpiece.
