MIT Gilbert & Sullivan Players Present: "The Pirates of Penzance"

Arrrr, an opera about pirates! Young Frederic, finally free of his 21-year apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates, falls in love with Mabel, the daughter of a Major-General. Unfortunately, the Pirate King and the nursemaid he scorned take advantage of his sense of duty to keep him from enjoying his newfound happiness for long...

There are multiple performances:

Friday, November 30, 8:00 PM
Saturday, December 1, 8:00 PM
Sunday, December 2, 2:00 PM
Thursday, December 6, 8:00 PM
Friday, December 7, 8:00 PM
Saturday, December 8, 2:00 PM

Tix are $5-$15 depending on whether or not you're a student. The Thursday show is FREE for MIT students.

I'll be playing violin in the show; we can meet in the lobby afterwards to mingle. There is usually a reception on opening night.

    I enjoyed the Pirates. It was very funny and the casts' voices were wonderful. I chatted a bit with the family sitting next to me, but was disappointed there was no way to identify the other meet-up people.

    I was there last night and thoroughly enjoyed the Pirates - and I wouldn't have known about it except for the Meetup message. Since it was my first time with the group, I didn't recognize anyone and was sorry that I couldn't identify anyone with the group. Other than that minor frustration, it was a terrific evening.

      I second that. We were in the middle on left. Just delightful and funny music.
