Our Musical for 2017 will be The Pirates of Penzance.
We’re pleased to say that after much deliberation we can announce our show for 2017 at the Millfield Theatre from June 7th-10th.
Revivals are all the rage in the West End and we’re no exception as we’ll bring an SMP twist to an old favourite.
For the first time in the groups history we will be performing the Gilbert and Sullivan classic Pirates of Penzance and bringing the show bang up to date with our take on it.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic opera is packed full of sentimental pirates, blundering policeman, absurd adventures and improbable paradoxes.
Frederic, a pirate’s apprentice, falls head-over-heels 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 snag. Born on 29 February, Frederic discovers that he is technically still a youngster. Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?
Why are pirate shows so good? Because they Aaargh!
Booking details will follow and we’ll keep you updated with all the news about the show on our website.
We hope you’ll join us for the show!
