Performing at Parker Playhouse (Mar 15 - Mar 15)
The acclaimed New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players perform the effervescent musical comedy Pirates of Penzance on Friday, March 15 at 8 p.m. at the Parker Playhouse. In one of the most beloved works in the G&S repertoire, a band of tender hearted pirates celebrate the coming of age of Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. Now, Frederic has vowed to devote his life to the extermination of piracy - until a ludicrous leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to the pirates for life! Throw in a bevy of beauties, a brash Pirate King, the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley and you've got what the New York Times calls "an endearing production with high musical standards and spirited performances."
The Parker Playhouse curtain rose for the first time on February 6, 1967. One of Fort Lauderdale’s first venues, the neo-classical Playhouse, was built by Dr. Louis Parker and is managed now by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. This 1,167-seat fully equipped theater plays an important role in the community by serving as a vibrant part of the area. Parker Playhouse helps fuel economic development while also bringing the community together with performances, activities and educational programming.
