The team behind last year’s sell-out show The Pirates of Penzance brings more laughs with a new fast-paced montage of Gilbert and Sullivan’s music in Pirates to Pinafore.
The show brings together Gilbert and Sullivan musicals in an hilarious 90 minute show being staged at the Redland Performing Arts Centre at 11am on February 13.
The production reflects on the hits and highlights of Gilbert and Sullivan’s successful career through the eyes of the two men and their manager, Richard D’Oyly Carte.
But as Gilbert himself wrote “things are seldom what they seem” and it’s well known these three men who created such magic around the world did not get on.
The performance stars music theatre’s Philip Gould as Arthur Sullivan, comic baritone Chris McKenna as W.S. Gilbert and international soprano Alison Jones as Leanora Braham, the principal soprano for the group.
It features songs and scenes from The Mikado, Iolanthe, Ruddigore, The Pirates of Penzance, H.M.S. Pinafore, The Sorcerer and Patience.
Tickets are $21–$30 and bookings can be made on 3829 8131 or rpac.com.au (booking fees are $4.10 by phone and $5 online per transaction).
