July 23, 2014
The Suwannee Valley Players announces that the youth production of Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance Jr. will be opening this weekend at the Chief Theater, home of the Suwannee Valley Players!. This hilarious farce is filled with sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty. Join us for this wacky and irreverent show for all ages. Book and Lyrics by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert, music by Sir Arthur Seymour. This play is presented by special arrangements with Music Theatre International.
