The departments of theatre arts and music debut the celebrated Gilbert and Sullivan musical The Pirates of Penzance at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 25 in the Morrison Center’s Danny Peterson theatre. The show will continue its run through March 6. Show times can be found here.

“The Pirates of Penzance was selected because of its great music, satirical story and variety of roles for our students in both theatre arts and music,” explains Margaret LeMay, managing assistant for the theatre arts department. “As a whimsical satire about class distinctions, our director, Darrin J. Pufall, is making the most of the irreverent and spirited energy of the show. Audiences will be delighted with his comical, surprising and unique approach to one of the classics of the English-speaking stage.”
