About the OPERA

On the 29th of February, 1897, the pirates of Penzance are holding a party to celebrate the apprentice Frederic's promotion to the status of full-blown pirate on his twenty-first birthday. Thanks to a most ingenious paradox, Frederic quickly finds himself torn between the world of gentlemen and the world of the pirates. Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular show, The Pirates of Penzance is a delightfully funny tale of a band of good-natured pirates -- a classic that's fun for all ages.

*On Saturday, February 18, patrons are invited to join us at GPAC from 2:00-5:00 for Pirate Fest! More info here.
