Sasha Regan’s production visits Cambridge from June 9-13 as part of its first UK tour.

A classic musical comedy of mistaken identity, The Pirates of Penzance follows young Frederic, a child apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted, orphaned pirates exploring the coastline in search of treasure and romance.

It first opened in 1879 and was an immediate triumph for Gilbert and Sullivan, remaining to this day their most popular and successful collaboration.

Shows are held on 7.45pm each day, with 2.30pm matinees on June 11 and June 13.
