Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society: The Pirates of Penzance

18th November 2015 @ 8:00 PM - 21st November 2015 @ 8:00 PM

| £8

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 Pirates of Penzance is one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous shows, and the Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society are delighted to present it as this year’s freshers’ show!
