PIRATES OF PENZANCE: CASTING ANNOUNCED

Casting has been announced for the D'Oyly Carte Opera's The Pirates of Penzance, which will open at the Savoy Theatre on 24th April 2001, following previews from 20th April 2001.

The cast will be headed by Royce Mills as 'Major-General Stanley', James Cleverton as 'The Pirate King', Gareth Jones as 'The Sergeant of Police', and Charlotte Page and Alison Rae Jones sharing the role of 'Mabel'.

This production follows the huge success that the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company have had recently at the Savoy Theatre with "H.M.S. Pinafore" and "The Mikado", both of which were nominated for Olivier Awards.

Gilbert & Sullivan's swashbuckling tale of pirates, policemen and the pretty daughters of 'Major-General Stanley' features a host of toe-tapping songs. 'I am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General', 'Poor Wandering One', 'I am a Pirate King' and "A Policeman's Lot is Not a Happy One' are just some of the well-known numbers in Sullivan's lively and tuneful score.

The show is directed by Stuart Maunder with design by Roger Kirk, choreography by Lindsay Dolan and lighting by Chris Ellis, with musical direction by John Owen Edwards.

Looking for the best seats...
