Pirates Poster

The Pirates of Penzance

Sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, and absurd adventures await in Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera: the Pirates of Penzance!

After hosting the Mikado and Madame Butterfly last year, the People’s Theatre Company are proud to bring opera back once more to the shores of the Nottingham Arts Theatre – and who better than G&S’s Slave of Duty?

Frederic, apprenticed to pirates by mistake, falls head-over-heels for Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic will be released from his pirate apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but it won’t be that easy –  he was born on the 29th of February, and so discovers that he is technically still a youngster. Although he loves Mabel, his dedication to duty is unbreakable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after?
