On Pride Weekend 2017, get ready for a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance that’s sure to be unlike anything the Twin Cities has ever seen! Set outside on Raspberry Island in downtown St. Paul, One Voice’s Pirates is a topsy-turvy, gender-bending musical adventure for the whole family, featuring a lesbian pirate king and her swarthy crew of sailors arriving by speedboat, an uproarious appearance from the Major General’s “daughters,” and so much more! Featured soloists include One Voice singers along with guest artists from among the Twin Cities’ best musical theater actors. Ben Krywosz, artistic director for Nautilus Theater, serves as artistic consultant, and Gary Briggle as stage director, with musical direction by Jane Ramseyer Miller. We hope you’ll join us on the banks of the Mississippi River, in your best pirate costume, for a weekend of dancing and frivolity, plus a live band and plenty of sing-along opportunities for the audience. The show is free and open to the public. VIP tickets are available starting at $25 (including beverage and seating under a shaded canopy).

Guests are encouraged to RSVP for the show they are attending in order to guarantee seating.
