Anonymous Theatre: The Pirates of Penzance

August 21, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 10:30 PM

$40 – $100

ABOUT Anonymous Theatre:
Auditions are held… in secret. The play is cast… in secret. Cast members rehearse the show one-on-one with the director… secretly… and do not learn the identity of the other cast members. On the night of the performance, the actors arrive in street clothes and enter the theatre as if they are members of the audience. They take their seats. They read their programs. They chat with their neighbors. The house lights dim and the play begins… with each actor delivering his or her first line from their seat. The audience gets to see the story happen as if it is happening for the first time… because it actually is happening for the first time.

ABOUT the show:
Pirates of Penzance is a comedic operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan that follows the story of Frederic, a young man who was mistakenly apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted pirates until his 21st birthday. As he reaches that fateful day, he decides to leave the pirates and vows to dedicate his life to the extermination of their kind. However, his plans take an unexpected turn when he encounters a group of beautiful maidens, the daughters of Major-General Stanley. Frederic falls in love with Mabel, one of the daughters, and the two face a series of comical and tangled situations. With lively music, witty dialogue, and delightful characters, Pirates of Penzance is a light-hearted and entertaining romp filled with love, humor, and swashbuckling adventures
