Pirates of Penzance at Logie Steading

August 14, 2014 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic opera is about Frederick, an apprentice pirate, born on 29th February, who quits the Pirate ship and falls in love with girl on land – until he learns he is contracted to the pirates until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. Being a steadfast Slave Of Duty, what is he to do? To denounce his piratical friends to the authorities? Or to postpone his marriage until he is 84?

The show is packed with laughter, romance and a ship-full of memorable lyrics such as “To be a Pirate King!”; “Modern Major General” and “A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One”. This wonderful operetta gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed by a reduced cast and accompanied by a Musical Director on keyboard. Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert’s libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan’s score unsung.
