May 20, 2016 - June 12, 2016
Pirates of Penzance

At first glance, Pirates may seem out of place in this season celebrating women but if you look closely you’ll see that the women are pulling all the strings! Join our band of swashbuckling buccaneers, bumbling British Bobbies, frolicsome Victorian maidens, and the delightfully dotty “model of a modern Major-General” for a rollicking romp over the rocky coast of Cornwall. No one performs Gilbert & Sullivan like Skylight Music Theatre! Book by W.S. Gilbert Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan Lyrics by W. S. Gilbert
