Head’s up musical lovers! Goldstar is offering a limited number of complimentary tickets to The Pirates of Penzance on Thursday, August 6th at the Ordway Center for Performing Arts in St. Paul! Tickets include a $11 service fee but are massively discounted even with the service fee. Discounted tickets are also available for other dates but are more expensive.
Lovably zany and filled with hummable tunes, The Pirates of Penzance has all the ingredients for the perfect farce: a damsel in distress, a sexy pirate king, an adorably dopey Major-General, and a series of delightfully absurd mix-ups. Still one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most loved shows, this comic opera follows young pirate’s apprentice Frederic who’s about to turn 21 and complete his term of servitude. Only one snag: He was born on a leap year, which means he’s technically only had five birthdays to date — and won’t have his 21st until he’s 84. Will he ever be free? Will he win the hand of the (supposedly) beautiful Mabel? Find out as one of the funniest musicals of all time takes the stage at Ordway Music Theater.
Stay tuned for my review coming August 7th!
