The wackiest beach party in town will continue through Feb. 25 due to high demand. Pasadena Playhouse, the State Theatre of California, announces a one-week extension of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance,” as reimagined by Chicago theater group the Hypocrites.
This wacky beach party — with flying beach balls, rubber duckies, ukuleles, banjos, plastic swimming pools and a tiki bar — brings the audience on stage.
“Pirates” is adapted and directed by Sean Graney, co-adapted by Kevin O’Donnell and with music direction by Andra Velis Simon.
“We are over the moon with the response to this production,” said Producing Artistic Director Danny Feldman. “Our audiences have wholeheartedly embraced the Hypocrites’ wild and fresh adaptation of this Gilbert and Sullivan classic, and we are delighted to keep the party going.”
Tickets are on sale at pasadenaplayhouse.org or by calling (626) 356-7529.
