The Pirates of Penzance and you!

Meridian Opera is bringing its unique style of community opera workshop to St John's Seven Kings. Come and join them to learn the chorus parts and perform a reduced version of one of Gilbert & Sullivan's best-loved comic operas.
On the rocky shores of Penzance, Frederic celebrates his twenty-first birthday and is released from his apprenticeship to a band of Pirates. He at once falls in love with Mabel, the daughter of a much respected Major-General. But the course of true love never did run smooth, and this is no exception! Members of Meridian Opera will sing the principal roles, but the workshop session will coach you to perform many of the chorus items. There will even be opportunities to be on the stage itself.
Music and words supplied. Refreshments provided. No experience needed, just bring your voice and come and join in the fun! Booty for the best dressed pirates!
