The Pirates of Penzance at the Minack
By W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

19:00, Wed 18th – Sat 21st September 2024 at The Minack Theatre
Summer Vacation

An apprentice to a band of pirates, Frederic has turned 21 and has chosen to leave piracy forever. As he says farewell to his former colleagues, who should appear but the beautiful Mabel, daughter to the esteemed Major General Stanley, and her many sisters. The two fall in love, and despite the group initially being captured by the pirates, they are soon released as the pirates have a soft spot for orphans, which Major General Stanley exploits. But despite a seemingly perfect life ahead for Frederic and Mabel, the pirates soon find a way to get at Frederic's sense of duty to the pirates...

The CUG&S society is taking the famous The Pirates of Penzance where it belongs, to the Minack Theatre in Cornwall (near the actual Penzance)! This show will celebrate the 50th year anniversary of the society's relationship with the Minack and promises to be a blast!

The production is put together on site as the cast, crew, and orchestra live and work together in the idyllic village of Paul in Cornwall (a short drive from the theatre). The cast will arrive towards the end of August to begin rehearsals, with the orchestra following a week later.
