Richmond Operatic Society will present the Gilbert and Sullivan classic Pirates of Penzance later this month.
The audience is invited to follow young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates.
He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel.
This story continues after the adverts:
Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major General Stanley’s songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to a few surprises.
The show is described as a swashbuckling farce of brilliant humour and razor-sharp wit thatmakes for the perfect night out.
The show is being performed at The Georgian Theatre Royal, Richmond, from 24 to 27 May.
