Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance
10 July 2018
Award winning Theatre Company Illyria present The Pirates of Penzance in an Outdoor Theatre production on Tuesday 24 July in the Civic Square at Mossley Mill.
Join us for the comedic story of The Pirates of Penzance now in its 27th year. Frederick, apprenticed to the Pirates since a child, learns that he was born in a leap year on 29 February, and that he is contracted to the Pirate King until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. With only the inept Penzance constabulary to protect him, how will he resist being forced to endure a life of crime until he is 84 - and will his sweetheart, Mabel, wait for him that long?
With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, The Pirates of Penzance is as fresh as if it had been written today. It is packed-full of memorable songs such as To be a Pirate King! Modern Major General and A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One.
Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer. We are delighted to have them at Mossley Mill.
So bring along your picnic rugs or low back seating and enjoy an evening of outdoor theatre in the stunning surroundings of Mossley Mill.
