The Pirates of Penzance

Buckle your swashes for a lively adventure!

The University of York Gilbert & Sullivan Society

Thursday 28 February to Saturday 2 March 2019

Join us for a swashbuckling adventure set in the heart of Cornwall; complete with dancing Pirate Kings, Major-Generals who sing far too fast, and a strange paradox that is (almost) too ridiculous to believe, all set to the wonderful music of Gilbert and Sullivan.

This timeless show will leave you laughing in your seats, produced and performed by a group of talented students from the University of York as they re-enact the phenomenon that swept Victorian society over a century ago.
