Pirates of Penzance

Thursday, March 8, 2018, 4:00 AM


Jacalyn Kreitzer, CPSOT's founder and producer, calls the Gilbert and Sullivan classic "a farce filled with puerile policemen, ludicrous lovers, pathetic pirates and an eccentric major general." Kreitzer selected "Pirates of Penzance" for this year's semi-staged production in honor of Thomas Davies, Cal Poly's director of choral activities and vocal studies, who is retiring at the end of the academic year. As with other CPSOT productions, students in "The Pirates of Penzance" will sing lead, comprimario and ensemble roles; and the chorus, stage managers, assistant director, assistant producer, make-up, costume designers and stage craftsmen are also students, from a wide variety of majors. Marcy Irving, founder and director of Central Coast Gilbert and Sullivan, will direct the production in concert style. Davies will conduct and Paul Woodring will play the orchestral parts on piano. Woodring is a Music Department staff accompanist and the university organist.
