Pirate ship in a sunset
  • Overview

    Written by W S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan, this amateur production is presented by this acclaimed Norfolk touring company.

    The tale follows Frederic, a young man, about to leave his indentures, through his encounters with the tender-hearted orphaned pirates. Ruth, the middle-aged pirate maid is the only female Frederick has ever seen – until The Major General’s beautiful daughters decide to picnic on the same beach that the pirates are “rollicking” on.

    The story consists of love, duty and loyalty and the score includes some of Arthur Sullivan’s best-loved music, and W S Gilbert’s most witty lyrics; with songs including With Cat-like Tread, When The Foeman Bares His Steel, and of course, I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major-General.
