Pirates of Penzance - A Play (with Music)

Pirates of Penzance is originally a 1879 Gilbert and Sullivan comedic classic operetta. Our play has been lovingly adapted by Heather Neumann, and includes musical elements throughout the show. The story begins on Frederic’s 21st birthday, when he’s freed from his accidental apprenticeship to a band of pirates. He decides to stop being a pirate and live an honest life. On his way from the pirate ship, he meets a sweet girl named Mabel and her many sisters, the daughters of (a modern) Major-General Stanley. Mabel and Frederic fall in love and plan to be married.Their plans are thwarted when the Pirate King finds a loophole in Frederic’s contract, which means that Frederic might have a duty to return to the pirates. A comedy of errors follows, focusing on Frederic’s bumbling attempts to decide where his duty lies – with Mabel or the band of pirates. 

Large cast wanted! Lots of lined characters, lots of stage time!!

Newsies

It's time to carry the banner on our stage with Disney's Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is based on the true tale of  "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack Kelly and pals rally newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions & fight for what's right!

 

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score. Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience. 

 

Over 40 lined characters! Lots of singing, dancing, and fun! Students will register in fall, payment isn’t due until after auditions. Students must be in a Troubadours choir in fall and spring in order to register.
