Hear some of the beautiful music from our upcoming Summer Grand Production of "The Pirates Of Penzance."

Join us on May 21 for a sneak preview of our upcoming Summer Grand Production of "The Pirates of Penzance" – but with a topsy-turvy twist that places the action not on the coast of Cornwall but instead in “the Caribbean.” You will hear many of the classic musical numbers from the show and meet the cast that will perform in June.

Did the Black Pearl make it across the Atlantic to land at Penzance? Will Captain Jack Sparrow or Captain Barbossa turn out to be the Pirate King? Is Frederick really Will Turner in disguise? Can Elizabeth Swann sing all of Mabel's coloratura?

Find out as we weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen while hornswaggling some of your favorite chanteys from “The Pirates of Penzance.”

This performance is free.
