Gilbert & Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance - Illyria Theatre

Illyria Theatre will perform Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance 'open-air' on Tuesday 31st July at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens.

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”.

Performance begins at 7.30pm, Tremenheere Kitchen will be open from 6pm with a special menu served from their wood-fired oven.
