THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE PROGRAM

OH, HERE IS LOVE, AND HERE IS TRUTH, AND HERE IS FOOD FOR JOYOUS LAUGHTER

As presented on Broadway by New York Shakespeare Festival, Joseph Papp, Producer
Directed by Wilford Leach
Musical Adaptation by William Elliot
Choreography by Graciela Daniele

30 years ago this swashbuckling Broadway version of The Pirates of Penzance rocked Hamer Hall. Now Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular musical comedy, with all the laughs, songs and romance that made it a long running Broadway smash, is back in the magnificent new Hamer Hall.

Brilliant creative team, Dean Bryant and Andrew Hallsworth stage this colourful extravaganza. Mathew Frank conducts a score that includes many of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular numbers: Poor Wandering One!, When the Foreman Bares his Steel, With Cat-Like Tread and Away, Away! My Heart’s On Fire.

Starring a dashing young cast including Gareth Keegan as Frederic, Adam Murphy as the Pirate King and Brent Hill as the Sergeant of Police. The hilarious Virginia Gay is Ruth and Wayne Scott Kermond is Major General Stanley.

Frederic is about to reach his 21st birthday. He wants to leave pirating behind, especially after he falls in love with the deliciously innocent Mabel. All does not go well with his plans especially when the Pirate King informs him that, since he was born on the last day of February in a Leap Year, his 21st birthday won’t roll around for some time yet. Therefore, he must remain a pirate. Adding to Frederic’s horror, the Pirate King decides that his next target is Mabel’s dear father, Major General Stanley!
