Presented by Bath Gilbert and Sullivan Society

Tuesday 20th - Saturday 24th November at 7.30pm with a matinee at 2pm on Saturday 24th

Winner of the NODA award for best G&S in the South West for its ground-breaking production of The Yeomen of the Guard in 2017, the society returns toThe Mission Theatre with one of the most successful and popular shows ever written.

The Pirates of Penzance is packed full of soft-hearted pirates, bumbling policemen, frolicsome maidens, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes. Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls madly in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. He is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there’s a snag. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?

Sullivan’s brilliantly tuneful score includes such classics as; ‘A Policeman’s Lot’, ‘I am the very Model of a Modern Major General’ and ‘Poor Wand’ring One’. Together with Gilbert’s sparklingly funny script and lyrics, this will be an undoubted Autumn treat for young and old alike - pirate dress optional, but welcome!
