About EMCo Show History Follow Us Gallery

Dan and Jack - smallOur pirate king Jack Powell talks about his love of theatre and why "break a leg" is much more than just a saying for him!
How long have you been in Emco?
Since December 2016.

What is your favourite role you have played? Why?
My favourite role was playing Henry VIII in 'A Man For All Seasons’. I got to have lots of fun with him as I was quite young in Henry’s life.
2016music3What is the funniest thing that has happened to you during a show/rehearsal?
Breaking my leg before rehearsal - it may not sound too funny but it ended up leading to some very interesting rehearsal moments.
Give a brief description of the character you are playing.
I play the Pirate King. A brass and fearless leader of his rollicking pirate band. He takes what he wants, when he wants and is not against the marriage to daughters of a Major General.
2016-02-18 21.44.34aWhat would your dream role be?
I could say something silly like, "The next one." (Looks wistfully to the distance) But I think my dream role would be one where I can really delve into my character and have lots of interactions with other characters. 
What would your character use as a chat up line?
I’ve sailed the seven seas, and you’re the sleekest schooner I’ve ever sighted!
What do you love/hate about your character?
I love his fearless nature but also the love he has for his band.
What celebrity would you like to play this role? Why?
I think seeing Hugh Jackman in this role could certainly be intriguing. He could definitely bring something to the character.

What is your pre show routine?
Plenty of water, stretching and a few vocal exercises, but mostly running over my lines in as many ways as I can. 

Tell me why people should come and watch this show.
This is a show for any and every age. Swash buckling pirates, fair maidens and a man who must decide between his love and his duty. Not to mention the wonderful songs you’ll be humming all the way home!

Pirates of Penzance is running now until  Saturday 11th June, nightly at 7.30pm with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30pm. This is a brilliant family show and children (and adults alike), are invited to come in their best Pirate costumes to really add to the Piratmosphere!

"A lively and extremely funny musical comedy with an infectious score of new disco numbers"
