The Pirates of Penzance

** A Family Production **
Adapted from Gilbert & Sullivan

  • “Opera Santa Barbara has concocted a delicious family treat to brighten the darkening days of November, a special one-hour production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s madcap operetta The Pirates of Penzance.”
    – Gerald Carpenter / Noozhawk
  • “The house was jammed with kids of all ages, the venerable venue trilling with laughter.  J.R. Calvert, playing the Major General, executed his role with winning perfection – each word clear, every gesture archival. The many young people in the cast reminded all present that the piece is a holiday offering.”
    – Daniel Kepl / SB News-Press
