Pirates Of Penzance At The Tabard
Charm of the original mixed with contemporary vigour
From the producers of last year’s Timeout Critic’s Choice Ruddigore, comes the most popularly celebrated of all the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, The Pirates of Penzance. Opening on Wednesday 16 May to Sunday 10 June 2012
The Pirates of Penzance is produced in-house at the Tabard Theatre whose previous musical credits in addition to Ruddigore include Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown, and Just So. Last year’s Ruddigore was a critical and box office smash, named Time Out Critics Choice and one of their Top Five Shows of the Week. It was subsequently extended due to popular demand.
With cast of 16, a live band and some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s best tunes such as ‘A Policeman’s Lot’, and ‘I Am The Very Model of a Modern Major General’, the Tabard Theatre’s production of The Pirates of Penzance imaginatively combines the wit and charm of the original with a contemporary vigour that will delight both G & S fans and new audiences alike
