Premiering in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance is a timeless tale of a young man struggling to do the right thing amidst love and piracy. The composers, Arthur Sullivan and W.S. Gilbert, were the most famous operetta writers at the turn of the century; their work set a precedent for the modern musical.
About thirty years ago, this operetta had such a strong resurgence that the production had to be moved from Central Park to Broadway, where there were over 700 performances. A film version followed.
The Pirates of Penzance is a comic-opera about looking beyond initial impressions and reserving judgment. It proves that you never know who will surprise you next—it might even be a pirate. Abundant with slapstick humor and beautiful maidens, The Pirates of Penzance is an extraordinary opportunity for young people to showcase their talent.
