Featuring well-bred buccaneers, defiant damsels and cowardly coppers, this classic comedy musical is the show that makes Roger jolly!
They may not be terribly successful, but the pirates of Penzance have impeccable manners: they think it's unsporting to attack anyone weaker than themselves, and their first thought upon capturing a group of beautiful young ladies is to propose marriage en masse.
But when they discover they've been tricked into letting their captivating captives go free, they plan a grisly revenge …
Can the cream of Cornwall's constabulary defeat them?
Will true love triumph?
And what is the pirates' guilty secret?
Gilbert and Sullivan's masterpiece combines inspired silliness with much-loved songs including I am the very model of a modern Major-General, With catlike tread and A policeman's lot is not a happy one.
