"Pirates of Penzance" by Shepherd University Music

Don’t miss Shepherd University Music’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta “Pirates of Penzance” on Friday, February 9 and Saturday, February 10 at 8:00 pm, and Sunday, February 11 at 3:00 pm in the Frank Arts Center Theater.

Directed by Dr. Bobb Robinson, with musical direction by Dr. Robb Tudor, the show is full of delightful songs and humorous twists that will entertain the entire family! It opens with Frederic, an orphan who has (on his twenty-first birthday) fulfilled the obligations of his erroneous apprenticeship to a band of rough and somewhat inept pirates. After disavowing his pirates’ life, he falls in love with Mable, daughter of the “Modern Major” General Stanley. When the Pirate King uncovers General Stanley’s lie to save his fortune (and daughters) from being spirited away, the plot thickens.

Admission and seating for Pirates of Penzance are on a first come-first serve basis and advance sales or reservations are not available. The box office will open one hour prior to each performance. General admission is $15; $10 for Shepherd faculty, staff, and alumni, senior citizens, and students 18 and under, and free for Shepherd students with Rambler ID.
