Theatre de Jeunesse Announces Summer Production “The Pirates of Penzance”
Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by W.S. Gilbert
Summer, 2013. Theatre de Jeunesse, a local theatre arts organization for Mid-Ohio Valley high school and early college aged young adults, announces the opening of the musical comedy The Pirates of Penzance on July 12th at the Hermann Fine Arts Center at 500 Butler Street in Marietta. This wacky and irreverent farce is a very funny show that the whole family will enjoy. Captain Jack Sparrow has nothing on the Pirate King in Joseph Papp’s 1980 Tony Award-winning revival. It spins a hilarious tale of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, ditsy and dewy-eyed daughters, and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty.
Theater seating is wheelchair accessible. Sign language interpretation and assistive listening devices will be provided.
8:00 PM Friday and Saturday performances on July 12, 13, 19, 20
2:30 PM Sunday matinees on July 14 and 21
The performance on July 20 will provide sign language interpretation
