The Pirates of Penzance

21st March 2024 - 23rd March 2024

Price: £20.00



Bristol Gilbert & Sullivan Operatic Society proudly presents an exciting new twist on a classic operetta. In a fantastical realm, filled with magic, mythical creatures, and daring adventures, a rollicking adaptation of The Pirates of Penzance unfolds in the world of Dungeons and Dragons.

Our young hero, Frederic, was mistakenly apprenticed to a band of kind-hearted but inept pirates. Now his apprenticeship is complete, he's ready to leave the pirate life behind him and rejoin respectable society! But in a classic twist of love, leap years and homophones, everything gets a bit complicated. And then the orc policemen show up.
What will happen when our heroes dice with death? Can Frederic and Mabel take things to the next level? Join our piratical band of rogues, fighters and barbarians on a swashbuckling adventure that's sure to be a critical hit*.
