The Pirates of Penzance
Throw together a band of pirates, a bumbling police force, a hapless Major General, and his gaggle of maiden daughters and you have the ingredients for a rollicking comic opera.

August 16, 2021 departures:

The Mikado
In one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular operas, the hero Nanki-Poo is in love with the Lord High Executioner's fiancé, Yum-Yum, but needs to make sure he doesn't lose his head!

The Pirates of Penzance
Throw together a band of pirates, a bumbling police force, a hapless Major General, and his gaggle of maiden daughters and you have the ingredients for a rollicking comic opera.

The Grand Duke
Conspiracy is afoot, helped along by secret signals and marriage for power. Can Ludwig, our protagonist, navigate the pitfalls of intrigue and control, or will it all fall into comical ruin?
