Essgee's Pirates of Penzance

Ipswich Musical Theatre Company are proud to announce auditions for their upcoming production of Essgee’s The Pirates of Penzance. Featuring a professional creative team, this production will reimagine a musical adaptation which over it’s multiple runs has starred Australian entertainment favourites like Jon English, Simon Gallaher, Andrew O’Keefe, Marina Prior, Toni Lamond, John Wood and more.

 

This adaptation of Gilbert & Sullivan’s late 1870’s operetta breathes new life into the 150 year old score with minimised & modernised orchestration, altered casting requirements, colourful costumes and freedom to improvise and interact with cast members and indeed, the audience itself.

 

What results is an explosive, exciting and fun musical experience for performers and
patrons alike. With the success of franchises like The Pirates of the Caribbean, the
demand for swashbuckling and plank-walking has never been higher and we can’t wait to bring a new rollicking band of Pirates to the shores of Ipswich this September.

 

Our new production is seeking talented & innovative singers, actors, dancers, acrobats, comedians, jugglers and everything in between. Don’t let the Gilbert & Sullivan connection scare you off, this is NOT your everyday traditional musical or operetta and takes the fourth wall and smashes a Pirate Ship right through it, creating a theatrical experience which is part pantomime, part musical theatre and 100% fun.
