Sudbury Secondary School stages a production of “The Pirates of Penzance” Feb. 11-12.
This musical extravaganza — with its cast of mischievous pirates, space-faring daughters and errant noblemen — is their first full-scale musical since the pandemic, an event that thrill-seekers, operetta buffs, and particularly high schoolers, are chomping at the bit to witness.
“It’s been a huge undertaking for both staff and students, but our school was ready to take on the challenge,” said Jessica Crowe, Sudbury Secondary’s Administrator of Arts Education.
“This is a milestone for many high school students looking to share their artistic talents and celebrate their hard work with an audience, and they finally get to do it.”
After an unprecedented pause in public performances due to the ongoing global pandemic, Vanessa Chevrette, Sudbury Secondary’s Theatre Arts teacher is helping steer the ship.
“This material is quite challenging,” said Chevrette. “From the music to the acting and set design, these students amaze me every day with their passion and dedication and we know audiences will not be disappointed.”
Excited to be setting sail again, the SSS Arts Department cordially invites theatre-goers in the Sudbury community to join them on this rediscovering, riotous ride.
The masterfully assembled and delightfully hilarious show will run Friday, Feb. 10 and Saturday Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. at Sudbury Secondary School’s Sheridan Auditorium at 154 College St.
Tickets are $15 for students and seniors and $20 for adults. Electronic tickets are available online here.
Physical tickets can be purchased at the school’s main office and at the door.
