The Pirates of Penzance
August 17, 2022
£6.00 – £40.00
Don’t forget to pre-book your food!
Frederick, apprenticed to the Pirates since a child, learns that he was born in a leap year on 29th February, and that he is contracted to the Pirate King until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. With only the inept Penzance constabulary to protect him, how will he resist being forced to endure a life of crime until he is 84 - and will his sweetheart, Mabel, wait for him that long?
With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, The Pirates of Penzance is as fresh as if it had been written today. It is packed-full of memorable songs such as To be a Pirate King!, Modern Major General and A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One.
As ever, we are delighted to welcome Illyria back to the park with this classic production.
Early booking strongly recommended.
