Exmouth Musical Theatre Company are delighted to be back with a bang for the show stopper that is the Broadway version of The Pirates of Penzance. This take on one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular shows spins a hilarious farce of sentimental pirates (right), bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General (below left), all morally bound to the often ridiculous dictates of honour and duty. The beauty, wit and whimsy of this classic light opera is suffused with a modern sensibility which leave audiences smiling all the way to the end.
However, as Exmouth Musical Theatre Company prepare to set sail for a voyage of sword fights and truncheon waving they find themselves one crew member short! As yet they have been unable to cast the part of the handsome hero Frederic. The lovely Mabel (played by Frankie Parry, above right) is looking for love and that special someone to sweep her off her feet!
