    The Pirates of Penzance

    Swashbuckling adventure with tender-hearted pirates and bumbling policemen!

    Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company

    Thursday 22 September to Saturday 24 September 2016

    Join us for piratical goings-on in one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous and popular hits.

    As a child, Frederic was apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted pirates, by his hard-of-hearing nurse, who misheard her master’s instructions.

    Today Frederic celebrates the completion of his 21st year, which means he is now free to return to society and respectability, or so he thinks.

    Add into the mix a Major General who knows nothing of military strategy, his large family, and the timid police force, and you have all the ingredients for a fun-filled adventure.
