“The Pirates of Penzance” was premiered in America before it was produced in London, so we really can make a claim that this is an “all American Masterpiece” season. With this show Gilbert and Sullivan hit their mature stride, and the topsy-turvy world got its first unqualified success, as well as an immediate slot as a certified masterwork. The excellence of the lyrics and score are an example of the very best in the tradition of musical theater. We have a long time company commitment to the presentation of these gems of the world tradition. This is another example of a show which is suitable for the entire family, and a show which draws grandparents, mothers, fathers, and children who can cherish it as a memory and share in it with pleasure together. We will present the company debut of Egyptian bass, Ashraf Sewailam, as the Pirate King, a role he has played widely in the United Kingdom, as well as America. This brings a new artist to our city and our company and will provide a great professional example for the members of the cast. Leon Natker will conduct and J. Sherwood Montgomery will again portray the Major General.
