Pirates at St Katharines ogtatw

An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets a course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’!

The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera.

Artistic Director: Vanessa Woodward
Producer: Mike Woodward
Production Director: Tristan Stocks
