Talk the talk or walk the plank!
DOLPHIN THEATRE – University of Western Australia
We proudly present the famously zany musical comedy, The Pirates of Penzance, a swashbuckling tale of boastful pirates, bumbling ‘bobbies’, deaf nannies, and damsels in varying states of distress.
From the team that brought you the sold-out seasons of The Mikado and The Yeomen of the Guard, this superbly traditional version will shiver your timbers.
The stars of The Mikado, Theodore Murphy-Jelley (The Pirate King), Chad Henderson (Frederic) and Belinda Cox (Ruth) return along with a cast of 50+ and orchestra to take you on a comic adventure of swagger, deception, revenge, incompetence and love gone terribly, terribly wrong.
This hilariously implausible tale of a boy apprenticed to a bunch of pirates by an aurally challenged nanny will give you one of the best nights at the theatre since 1879. Pandemonium erupts when the pirates with rather more swash than buckle confront Gilbert’s own version of the Keystone Cops to unleash the show’s high energy climax of comic madness.
