Village Light Opera Group Presents The Pirates of Penzance

Hurrah! Tickets are now on sale for The Village Light Opera Group’s Spring 2013 production, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. This fully-staged show, directed by VLOG favorite Emily Cornelius (IOLANTHE and CAROUSEL), features a new orchestration by William Remmers and a fantastic cast, including Jason B. Schmidt as the comic fop-cop The Sergeant of Police!

Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved operetta follows a handsome young pirate who has never seen a handsome young maiden, along with his band of ruffians who know what it is to be an orphan (often!). Our lovely young Mabel always hits the high notes, and our Major-General is the very most modern model. Don’t miss it!
