The Pirates of Penzance
2pm, Saturday 4th September
An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’!
The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera!
7pm, Saturday 4th September
The Mikado presents a tangled web of love. Nanki-Poo, son of the Mikado, flees in search of his true love, Yum-Yum, to avoid marrying a much older suitor. Yum-Yum, however, is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, against her will.
Things quickly become complicated! But can everything be righted before someone loses their head?
11am, Sunday 5th September
A tale of mismatched love across different social classes. Josephine is the captain’s daughter and has fallen for lowly sailor Ralph. Yet her father has other ideas – he has promised her to Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty.
Will love prevail? Climb aboard to find out and enjoy a feast of fun along the way. Hip hip hooray!
3pm, Sunday 5th September
Patience is Gilbert & Sullivan’s lively operetta that playfully pits the strict morals of the Victorian era against the passionate indulgences of the 1870s Aesthetic Movement.
A high-spirited tale full of the misplaced desires of rakish poets, swooning maidens and burly military men!
