The Pirates of Penzance

Everything is going well for Frederick - it's his 21st Birthday, he's met the girl of his dreams and he's free from an ancient family obligation to an infamous Pirate crew… or is he?

To his horror he soon discovers that the things he has always taken for granted are not what they seem and he must make a choice between love and duty.

Following their acclaimed production of Sweet Charity, PPA presents a brand new production of Gilbert and Sullivan's masterpiece The Pirates of Penzance. Featuring athletic, ferocious Pirates, a fast talking Major General and an unwitting local peacekeeping force, the show is packed with some of the most memorable songs ever written including Poor Wandering One, With Cat Like Tread and A Policeman's Lot is Not A Happy One.

Book now to join PPA on this magical, riotous and swashbuckling adventure!
