Utah Shakespeare Festival's Playmakers Students to Present THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE, 4/10-14

The students of the Utah Shakespeare Festival's Playmakers program have been hard at work on their upcoming production of The Pirates of Penzance. Now they are ready to set sail and show it off with performances April 10 through April 14 in the Randall L. Jones Theatre.

Tickets are general admission and are $5 for children and students, and $8 for adults. They can be purchased by calling 435-586-7878 or online at www.bard.org.

This group of over eighty Iron County students, together with their fearless leaders from the Festival's education department, have put together what promises to be an exciting, adventurous voyage enjoyable for the whole family.

"Once a student has performed in Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance, they can do anything," said Festival Education Director Michael Bahr.

The Pirates of Penzance is a hilarious musical farce that centers on a host of colorful characters including sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major General.

"This show is a wonderful tool for teaching diction, musicality and character, plus it's laughter and excitement for the whole family," said Bahr. "In addition to public performances the student cast will be performing four matinees for local elementary schools."
