Alistair McGowan & West End cast in The Pirates of Penzance

Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance starring comedian and impressionist Alistair McGowan as the Pirate King will be playing for three nights only at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on 11th March and The Barbican Hall on 12th March at 7:30 pm and at the Birmingham Symphony Hall on 13th March at 3:00 pm.

Joining McGowan will be Simon Butteriss at the Major General, Mark Evans as Samuel, David Curry as Frederic, Rebecca Bottone (Mabel), Abigail Iveson (Edith), Rosie Bell (Isabel) and Alison Jiear as Ruth.

Sullivan's popular score contains some of his best music and Gilbert takes you through the swashbuckling world of young Frederic, the Pirate apprentice, who was born on February 29th in a leap year and therefore won't be 21 and come of age until he is 84!

The score includes A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One, I Am the Pirate Queen, With Cat-Like Treat, Poor Wandering One, Hail Poetry, Here’s a First Rate Opportunity, Climb Over Rocky Mountain and The Modern Major General.
