Cliftonville Outdoor Theatre: The Pirates of Penzance

The Oval Bandstand & Lawns are bringing the community together this summer to laugh, cry, eat, drink, and enjoy the unique atmosphere of an outdoor theatrical experience!

An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets a course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’! The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera.
