The Pirates of Penzance 2020

Lake Harriet Players, a theatre ministry of Lake Harriet United Methodist Church, brings you The Pirates of Penzance this March! 


This year in March, the Pirates sail ashore!

Lake Harriet Players present Gilbert and Sullivan’s rollicking light opera, The Pirates of Penzance. The famous musical abounds with both lightning fast patter songs and heart-soaring arias as young Frederic attempts to leave his band of pirates for his new-found love Mabel. Obstacles ensue: departed loves, a mischievous Major General with many daughters, bumbling authorities, and the maligned orphan pirates.

The show features song classics like I Am The Very Model Of A Modern Major General, and the rousing With Cat-Like Tread. There’s lots of color in our production set in the 1960s, and the dancing is wild and joyous!

Our intergenerational cast of 65, our orchestra, our crew, and the Lake Harriet Players all invite you to join us for a show full of laughter, tenderness, and glorious music.
