The Pirates of Penzance

Esperero Canyon

Proudly Presents:

Pirates of Penzance, Jr.

Directed By: Ms. Higgins & Ms. Merry

Set sail with this classic Gilbert & Sullivan comedy, a swashbuckling musical journey! Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall, England, "The Pirates of Penzance, Jr." begins with a group of pirates who are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his 21st year. Finally having served the full length of his required time the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen- which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice.

Performances March 7 & 8, 2019

KIDSTAGE: SILVER

KIDSTAGE STAFF

MONDAY

$165

Just as "Wicked" is to "The Wizard of the OZ" so is "Silver" to "Treasure Island."

Long John Silver wasn’t always a notorious pirate. There was a time, back in pirate school, when he was just a one legged outcast struggling to make friends and find his way. It is here that he meets the spunky and confident pirate queen Captain J. Flint and starts the hunt for the legendary treasure of the text-loving Oracle.

Through helping his friend and a steady rivalry with the ruthless Captain Smollett, Silver soon finds himself on the path that will eventually lead him to the Hispaniola and Treasure Island. The script includes many elements of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story but it takes pirates into the 21st century and proves that there really are two sides to every story.
