Penzance: the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Pirateship Tarantula.
When Frederic believes his indenture to the Pirate King is coming to an end, he stumbles upon the lovely daughters of a Major General, and falls in love-at-first-sight with winsome Mabel. But when his former cohorts, the Pirates of Penzance, arrive they capture this bevy of bathing beauties in order to marry them. Will the ladies’ virtue be spared? Will Frederic ever actually reach his twenty-first birthday? Will the Major General ever get another night’s sleep? Of course the topsy-turvy all ends up right in this beloved classic.
In the vein of freeFall’s wildly popular production of THE MIKADO, this irreverent re-imagining of the G&S masterpiece will whisk you away to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

$150 Modeled after the amazing success of the 52nd Street Project in New York, this week-long recurring program pairs professional actors with young theatre artists in a unique one-on-one playmaking experience. Through a series of exercises, interviews, and writing activities, each student and their mentor will not only create an original short play, but also star in it together, culminating in a showcase of original work at week’s end. Each session of the 60th Street Project promises to be a unique one, with new actors, new themes, and of course, new ideas. Returning students will be able to continue their work on previous plays or develop new ones. Attendance for all 5 days of your session is mandatory for enrollment and space is limited so reserve a spot early!
