freeFall once again brings Gilbert and Sullivan to Tampa Bay audiences with a hilarious new adaptation of The Pirates of Penzance opening August 6 and running through September 4.
Penzance: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Pirate ship Tarantula.
When Frederic (Nick Lerew) believes his indenture to the Pirate King (Hayden Milanes) is coming to an end, he stumbles upon the lovely daughters of a Major General (Glenn Gover), and falls in love-at-first-sight with winsome Mabel (Kaylin Seckel). But when his former cohorts, the Pirates of Penzance, arrive they capture this bevy of bathing beauties in order to marry them. Will the ladies’ virtue be spared? Will Frederic ever actually reach his twenty-first birthday? Will the Major General ever get another night’s sleep? Of course the topsy-turvy all ends up right in this beloved classic.
