Pirates (Berkeley Playhouse 2012)

25 Feb 2012 to 5 Apr 2012

Get ready for the swashbuckling shenanigans of poetic pirates and karate-kicking “maidens” in a Gilbert & Sullivan with a touch of rock and punk! With hip dance choreography and hilarious stage combat, this zany production of Pirates of Penzance has something for everyone – you’ll be rolling in the aisles, and bopping to the beats with this great introduction to the G & S comedic canon.

Check out our production photos on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Berkeley-Playhouse/58068231596 and then come with us on a new musical adventure. Pirates is one of the funniest of all Gilbert & Sullivan’s light operettas and Director, Jon Tracy and Music Director, Jonathan Fadner give you all the best elements of the classic and more: a dashing Pirate King; Teddy Boy Pirates; strong, can-do maidens; a Major General who is the poster child for the 1%, and of course, a fun, energetic score with a touch of rock, punk and ska! Don’t miss the laughs of this hip, energetic re-imagining of the Pirates of Penzance!
