EMERGING AMERICA FESTIVAL Pirates of Penzance
June 21 - June 24, 2012
By Gilbert and Sullivan, With New Arrangements by Kevin O'Donnell; Directed by Sean Graney; Performed by The Hypocrites
Bringing the sold-out production from their native Chicago, The Hypocrites treat this hilarious musical in an entirely thrilling new way. Treat yourself to an eighty-minute exotic excursion featuring bathing beauties, philosophizing pirates, and grown men in remarkably short shorts! Warning: If you want boring, stay away; this experience will cause immense joy and the compulsion to spontaneously sing along. Come ashore with the “Very Model of A Modern Major General,” the Pirate King, and a banjo-picking Mabel. The show features beach balls, sunshine (the artificial kind), and tons of fun music.
