by Shari Barrett - Dec 5, 2014

The Pirates of Penzance with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert is an hilarious and hopeful farce concerning Frederic (Chris Yeschenko), who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates led by the hot-shot Pirate King (the ultimate pirate Drew Fitzsimmons, who co-directed and choreographed the production with Michael-Anthony Nozzi). Performances continue through December 21 at the San Pedro Theatre Club. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jun 19, 2014

Not often seen on Seacoast stages, Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance is as wacky, irreverent and as entertaining today as it was when it first opened to acclaim in 1879. The story spins a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty.
