PIRATES OF PENZANCE Music by Arthur Sullivan & libretto by W. S. Gilbert.
On gaining the age of 21, Frederic expects to complete his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. However, he soon learns that as his birthday is on 29th February, he technically only has a birthday every four years and so must serve on for another 63 years!
His solace is that his true love, Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, agrees to wait for him faithfully. Somerset Opera make a welcome return to the Regal Theatre with a fully costumed cast of over 30 experienced and talented performers, many of whom Minehead has met before, such as Mark Randle as the Major General, Guy Robinson as Frederic, Dennis Carter as the Pirate
King and Victoria Armillotta as Mabel.
A melodic feast of fun is assured with the usual mix of antics and comedy! An evening of fun for all G & S lovers.
