Pirates of Penzance – Why are pirate shows so good? Because they Aaargh!
by SMP Theatre
Revivals are all the rage in the West End and we’re no exception. We’ll bring an SMP twist to an old favourite. Thrusting the Gilbert & Sullivan classic up to date with our hilarious take on it.
Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic opera is a tale packed full of soppy pirates, inept policemen, absurd adventures & improbable paradoxes. Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there’s a snag. Born on 29 February, he discovers he is technically a youngster. Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel? Will the Pirates Pillage the General’s daughters? Will the police do anything? The only way to find out is to watch the show!
Keep your eyes peeled for our bonafide Archie who plays the role of Roger the Cabin Boy. His job is to keep the rascally pirates topped up with rum and to create mischief wherever he can!
