Pirates of Penzance opens March 15 in Pacifica

Press release

By on Tue, February 25, 2014


As enjoyable today as it was when it first opened in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance is the comical tale of two young lovers mixed up with a band of tender-hearted pirates, bumbling policemen, an eccentric Major-General and his beautiful daughters - all morally bound by a sense of duty. The enchanting music and witty lyrics of Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic score has delighted audiences for over a century… even the revival took New York by storm in 1980, winning 3 Tony Awards and 5 Drama Desk Awards. Come join Frederic and Mabel on their musical journey of love, loyalty, duty and, of most importantly… Pirates!
