The Off Broadway Theatre, celebrating 15 years of comedy, is pleased to announce the opening of The Pirates of Penzance, the famous light-parody and satire, by Gilbert and Sullivan on Friday July 31st. Curtain rises at 7:30 PM. Seating is reserved.
Originally written and premiered in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance is the story of a young lad, Frederic, who, on his twenty-first birthday, newly out of his pirate apprenticeship, soon finds out that though he has technically lived twenty-one years, he was born on leap year and is thus torn between his “sense of duty” to finish his indentures with the haggard lot of pirates (finishing at the age of 63) or to live a new life on the shores of Cornwall, England with the fair-maiden Mabel.
Frederic is played by new-comer, David Peterson. Mabel is played by Rivkah Steele, an Idaho resident, who also is debuting her talent at Off Broadway Theatre. Both David and Rivkah will be available for interviews; please call to schedule.
