Everyone is invited to say their farewell to their beloved pirates, played by renowned musical theatre actor Philip Gould (Pirate King), veteran comic baritone Brian Hannan (The Major General and The Police Sergeant), international soprano Alison Jones (Mabel), Opera Australia mezzo soprano Caroline Vercoe (Ruth), and Chris McKenna (Frederic). Dominic Woodhead is show’s the musical director.

As always, the group will perform with a full set and costumes. See them for the last time as they clash with swords and trade barbs while singing the modern versions of “I Am The Pirate King”, “Policeman’s Lot is Not a happy One”, “Cat Like Tread”, and “Poor Wandering One”.

On top of what promises to be a memorable show, as a way of final goodbye, the performance will also incorporate some Donald Trump impersonation within the play.

This show is a must-see for those looking for a great time in the theatre, particularly since this will be one of their last performances before the curtains close on the show in Australia. For tickets, click here.
