Lakeshore Light Opera is gearing up for another great season!

2015 The Pirates of Penzance

Lakeshore Light Opera, a non-profit community theatre group, performs a fully orchestrated Gilbert & Sullivan operetta once a year with profits going to the Lakeshore General Hospital (a local hospital serving the West-Island community of Montreal) via the
Lakeshore General Hospital Foundation. Our annual donations are used by the Foundation to purchase equipment not covered by the hospital’s budget nor by Provincial grants.


THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE

A rollicking band of soft-hearted pirates; a bumbling squad of British policemen; an erudite Major General and his bevy of beautiful daughters. That’s right, Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance is coming to the stage in Pointe Claire.

Years ago, Frederic was mistakenly apprenticed to the Pirate King by his nursemaid Ruth. Now, on his 21st birthday, Frederic is returning to society to atone for the wrongs he has committed. He immediately falls in love with Mabel, one of the daughters of Major-General Stanley. When the pirate band accosts Stanley’s daughters, the Major-General encourages Frederic to lead a troop of policemen to destroy the pirates. But an ingenious paradox forces Frederic to return to his pirate ways and betray his beloved Mabel. A ferocious battle ensues until Ruth reveals that the pirates would make ideal sons-in-law for the Major-General. Oh Britannia!
