Young pirates to board Lismore

This is a drawing of actor Richard Temple playing the pirate king in the first London performance of The Pirates of Penzance, which opened in 1880. Now this famous Gilbert and Sullivan operetta is playing in Lismore this weekend.

If youre in the mood for a bit of a swashbuckle this weekend then what could be better than seeing Gilbert and Sullivans The Pirates of Penzance, which YOWL (Young Opera Workshop Lismore) is presenting in Lismore.

The director, musicians and production team all volunteer their time and expertise.Cast members get their parts in December and learn their lines and songs alone.Then they workshop 12 hours a day for five days to present the North Coast with three swashbuckling performances of this famous operetta.

You can participate in the fabulous songs, the fine costumes, the looting and the pillaging at the Uniting Church in Lismore (corner of Woodlark and Keen Streets) this Friday, January 18, at 7pm; and this Saturday, January 19, at 1pm and 7pm.
