Musical mayhem on the high seas!  Gilbert and Sullivan are on a steamer bound for the New York opening of their new hit – a roaring farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, and hopeful young lovers. Unfortunately, they’ve left the score in London! They scramble to recreate the show with only the clothes in their trunks and ship mates for a cast. All the music you love in this hilarious operetta at sea.

This show is for everyone! Share a good laugh and hum along. Kids will love it!


Our Pirates is one of the funniest collections of talented artists I’ve been privileged to work with. Audiences new to Gilbert and Sullivan will love the music and the wicked humor! ”  –Doug Scholz-Carlson
