The Pirates of Penzance presented by Center for the Arts

Center for the Arts presents the musical, The Pirates of Penzance on stage August 11-27.   This story portrays the story of a band of tenderhearted pirates, a modern Major-General, a bevy of Victorian maidens, and a bunch of bumbling British bobbies in Gilbert & Sullivan’s musical comedy classic.

The cast of the production will lead audiences through the adventures of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed as a young boy, to a band of sentimental pirates. Frederic, now 21, falls head-over-heels for the Major-General’s daughter Mabel, and swears off the pirate life forever but an absurd leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to piracy for life.

“This production has been a great experience and a wonderful journey,” says first time director at The Center, Chris McLaurin.  “We hope to surprise and delight you with a dazzling array of talents.”

Supertitles (transcribed lyrics projected onto a screen) will be used for this production because of the operatic style of music.  Many of the are cast are trained opera performers and have impressive vocal ranges that will wow the audience.  McLaurin describes it as “a funny farce of an Operetta.”

There will be a private, advance screening for a selected audience and media on Thursday, August 10th at 7:30 pm.  Please contact The Center for a media pass or to request a director or cast interview.

Opening night is Friday, August 11.  Performances run Friday through Sunday until August 27.

The Pirates of Penzance presented by Center for the Arts

Center for the Arts presents the musical, The Pirates of Penzance on stage August 11-27.   This story portrays the story of a band of tenderhearted pirates, a modern Major-General, a bevy of Victorian maidens, and a bunch of bumbling British bobbies in Gilbert & Sullivan’s musical comedy classic.

The cast of the production will lead audiences through the adventures of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed as a young boy, to a band of sentimental pirates. Frederic, now 21, falls head-over-heels for the Major-General’s daughter Mabel, and swears off the pirate life forever but an absurd leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to piracy for life.

“This production has been a great experience and a wonderful journey,” says first time director at The Center, Chris McLaurin.  “We hope to surprise and delight you with a dazzling array of talents.”

Supertitles (transcribed lyrics projected onto a screen) will be used for this production because of the operatic style of music.  Many of the are cast are trained opera performers and have impressive vocal ranges that will wow the audience.  McLaurin describes it as “a funny farce of an Operetta.”

There will be a private, advance screening for a selected audience and media on Thursday, August 10th at 7:30 pm.  Please contact The Center for a media pass or to request a director or cast interview.

Opening night is Friday, August 11.  Performances run Friday through Sunday until August 27. General admission tickets are $15.00 for adults, $13.00 for seniors, students and military, and $11.00 for children.   Groups of 10 or more receive a $2.00 discount per ticket.  Tickets are available by visiting boroarts.org or calling The Center’s box office at 615-904-2787.  Center for the Arts is located at 110 W. College Street in Murfreesboro, TN.
