The Welk Resorts announces THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE

The Welk Resorts announces THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE starring Broadway veteran Sue Goodman, Randall Dodge, Richard Bermudez, Karenssa LeGear and Bart Williams.

Pirates of Penzance is the classic Gilbert & Sullivan comic operetta that feels like a slapstick, uproarious musical. Breathtaking voices are featured in this romp through life by swashbuckling pirates, beautiful maidens, a doddering old Major General and bumbling police. Young Frederic is apprenticed to a pirate by mistake due to his nursemaid being hard of hearing. His father wanted him apprenticed to a PILOT – but the mistake grew into a relationship. Upon his 21st birthday he is out of his indentures, and vows to destroy the pirates due to his sense of moral duty. The Pirate King and Ruth, the nursemaid concoct a ridiculous plot to keep him in the fold. They tell him he was born on Feb 29th of leap year, so he is really only 5 and a half years of age. Chaos ensues and the Pirates end up defeating the Keystone Cops and marrying the daughters and all ends happily!

Pirates of Penzance runs March 11 – May 2 (No TUESDAY shows) and is directed and choreographed by Ray Limon
