Forbear! Theatre brings all-time favourite The Pirates of Penzance to the Opera House today.  

The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most enduringly popular of Gilbert and Sullivan's great comic creations, full of memorable melodies you will be humming all the way home. 

Frederic, a pirate's apprentice, falls instantly in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there's a problem. Born on 29 February, he discovers that technically he must serve the pirates for another 63 years! Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is resolute. Can he and Mabel find a happy ever after? 

Come and join Forbear! Theatre for a hilarious afternoon's entertainment with swashbuckling pirates and blundering policemen galore! 

Accompanied by the National Festival Orchestra, directed by William Remmers.
