A teaser for the show shares:
Sasha Regan’s award-winning All-male Company are set to lift everyone’s spirits with a pre-Christmas treat in their new West End pirate’s cove. The swashbuckling pirates and their winsome lasses sail into the Palace Theatre with their inventive new take on W. S. Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan’s classic operetta THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. Featuring a dazzling cast singing songs including: “I am a Pirate King”; “Oh, happy day, with joyous glee” and “A rollicking band of pirates we”, they are sure to raise the roof off the Palace Theatre!
Expect plenty of japes from the crew who are braving the high seas with rum and hand-sanitisers to bring you a socially distanced Covid-secure show. A joyous and much needed escape for families and friends.
Regan said: “In the midst of all the sadness and chaos this year, we have something to look forward to. We’re going to the ball! This moment has taken us years and despite the lockdown, we’re seeing a real demand for this show.”
