Pirates of Penzance Teen Workshop
July 25 – August 13, 2016
Directed by Isaac Lamb
Musical Direction by Mont Chris Hubbard
This intensive 3-week training workshop is designed for students who are serious about pursuing musical theater performance. Participants will get real-world experience by rehearsing and mounting a full production of The Pirates of Penzance!
Set sail with one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular comic operas. This hilarious, hopeful farce follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates. He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel. Frederic’s melodious tones win over the heart of Major General Stanley’s songbird daughter, Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of “The very model of a modern Major-General.”
