The Pirates of Penzance - Open Air Theatre, Winwick Hall
  • Winwick Hall,
    NN6 7PD
  • Friday 26th August 7:00pm until 9:30pm
Come to our Open Air Theatre at The Folly, and enjoy a thrilling performance of The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan.

Frederick, apprenticed to the Pirates since a child, learns that he was born in a leap year on 29th February and that he is contracted to the Pirate King until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year. With only the inept Penzance constabulary to protect him, how will he resist being forced to endure a life of crime until he is 84 - and will his sweetheart, Mabel, wait for him that long?

With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, The Pirates of Penzance is as fresh as if it had been written today. It is packed-full of memorable songs such as To be a Pirate King, Modern Major General and A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One.

The Folly Theatre is in the heart of the Winwick Hall Estate, Winwick, Northamptonshire, NN6 7PD. Please note, it is outdoors. Don’t forget your picnics, chairs or rugs.

Alternatively, you can book in for a delicious tea or some light refreshments at the Polo Pavilion Tea Room which will be open from 5pm until 6.30pm.
