The Pirates of Penzance

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Frederic, a pirate's apprentice, falls in love with Mabel, the Major General's daughter and is due to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, but there's a problem.

His birthday falls on 29 February, so technically, he is not yet even an adult. Frederic's sense of duty is unshakeable, and he resolves to return to the pirates to complete his apprenticeship. But will he ever be able to return to his true love Mabel?

Madcap schemes and absurd adventures abound! Directed by Sarah Helsby Hughes, this promises to be a hilarious swashbuckling production.
