An evening with the Pirates of Penzance!

With catlike, no, more like: with joyful proclamation and patter, we proudly announce: The pirates are coming! The pirates are coming! A favourite of Gilbert and Suilivan enthusiasts, The Pirates of Penzance is a wonderful romp through such favourites as “Oh, Better Far to Live and Die”, “How Beautifully Blue the Sky” and of course, “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General”.

Directed by Tim Elliott & Mike Johnson, this clever classic tells the story of Frederick, who is freed from his apprenticeship to a rather merry gang of pirates on the occasion of his 21st birthday. When he meets Mabel, he falls head over heels in love only to have his happy hopes dashed by the discovery that he is only five years old, since he was born February 29th in a leap year. All kinds of tomfoolery unfurls as we meet the colourful cast of characters and watch poor Frederick grapple with the bonds of love, duty and a most convenient paradox.

Oh, Better book early and join us for this adventure on the high seas of music and laughter. And we mustn’t forget, Rapture!

Costuming is full steam ahead!

Tickets are $20 adults,

                      $15 students and seniors less

If we have 12 or more Cogs attending each ticket will be discounted $2 for the group rate (ie $18 and $13)

    So sorry we missed it. We caught colds, and we didn't want to risk anyone else getting sick.

    Ok I have purchased the tickets for the 14 adults and 2 students currently signed up and will have them at the door at the door. They will be $18 and $13 respectively. You can pay me at the door or arrange to meet sooner if you wish. If you are not already on the list you can still get a ticket at the reduced rate, just contact me and I will let you know how to do so.

    I will be purchasing the tickets Monday and then collecting from the cogs. So if you see me before then I would appreciate getting your ticket $ . Currently I believe we have 15 adults and 2 students so the group rate will apply.

    Do we just pay at the door?

    April 7, 2014

    • Mike J.

      I am confirming whether we can pay as individuals at the door or whether I need to buy the tickets in one bunch. I will post when I find out.

    Hi, I'll be taking my two kids (so, two students) and my girlfriend (so, two adults) - but the registration won't let me do plus 3, so add an additional person to the overall cogs heading out please! Thanks!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
