SUMMARY

DULOG presents their Michaelmas term production, Gilbert and Sullivan's 'The Pirates of Penzance'.

Young pirate apprentice Frederic is released from his service and heads ashore to lead the life of a free man. Unaccustomed to female company he instantly falls in love with Mabel, a daughter of the Major-General. Soon the rest of the pirates follow suit, in search of women of their own, and hilarity ensues in a battle between the scurvy crew and the Major-General’s hapless police force.

This Tony Award-winning operetta has been performed on both Broadway and the West End and was also adapted into the 1983 film version starring Kevin Kline and Angela Lansbury. Here it is revived by the best musical and theatrical talent from Durham University.
