THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE

Morpheus Theatre
Calgary

Directed by Paige Fossheim
Show times: Wed-Sat at 7:30pm, Sat/Sun at 2:00pm (*no matinee Sat Apr 30*)
Pumphouse Theatre: 2140 Pumphouse Ave SW
Tickets: Adult $23, Student/Senior $18

Strike up the band for one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most beloved operettas! The Pirates of Penzance combines whimsy, light-hearted satire and piratical characters with stirring music, including the iconic “Major-General’s Song”. This is the play that cemented the comic-pirate theme in popular culture, a theme that has lasted through more than a century and spawned countless movies and novels. Jam-packed with sentimental, swashbuckling pirates, a completely dotty Major General and a bumbling bunch of hopeless but hilarious policemen, what could possibly go wrong? To add to the topsy-turvy nature of G&S, Morpheus will be flipping the genders of all your favourite characters.

(Online version May 12 to 14)

Formerly The Beaumont Fringe, The Beaumont International Festival began in 2019 with one show, on one night.

2022 Promises to be the biggest festival we've hosted so far! Stay tuned for who's coming because what kind of Summer is it without an Arts Festival?!
