The Pirates of Penzance

by Arthur Sullivan and W.S. Gilbert
April 6-9, 2017 

Lyell B. Clay Theatre, WVU CAC

Long before Disney pirates started to yuk it up in the Caribbean, Gilbert and Sullivan’s seafaring brigands were blending romantic comedy with glorious song in this beloved operetta. Join the School of Music and School of Theatre & Dance as they tell a tale of reluctant pirates, fair maidens, and questionable naval intelligence. 

Directed by Lee Blair.
