Sarah Pugh in “The Pirates of Penzance” with Illyria Theatre

Sarah Pugh is embarking on a national tour of “The Pirates of Penzance” with Illyria Theatre Company. 


Performed by a 6-strong cast of actor/singers with specially-orchestrated jauntily-nautical accompaniment, The Pirates of Penzance gets the complete Illyria treatment. Despite the reduction in scale not a single word from WS Gilbert’s libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan’s score unsung.    

With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, The Pirates of Penzance is as fresh as if it had been written today. It is packed-full of memorable songs such as To be a Pirate King!, Modern Major General and A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One.
