Pi­rates ‘aar­rggh’ com­ing

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Ararat Mu­si­cal Com­edy So­ci­ety’s 2017 pro­duc­tion of ‘Pi­rates’ is about to set sail.

A mod­ern take on Gilbert and Sul­li­van’s ‘Pi­rates of Pen­zance’, the show will be di­rected by Grant John­son with mu­si­cal di­rec­tion by Wally Pope.

An in­for­ma­tion night will be on Jan­uary 31 for any­one in­ter­ested in be­ing part of the show, ei­ther on stage or be­hind the scenes.

The in­for­ma­tion night will be at 7.30pm in Ararat 800 Pri­mary School’s multi-pur­pose room off Moore Street. Au­di­tions will be on Fe­bru­ary 2 and 4, with au­di­tion times to be booked at the in­for­ma­tion night, or by phon­ing Ren­nie Han­nan on 0438 282 008.

Mr John­son said Pi­rates of Pen­zance was one of Gilbert and Sul­li­van’s most well known and loved shows, but par­tic­i­pants in the Ararat pro­duc­tion could ex­pect sur­prises.

“There will be a few plot twists and ad­di­tions to the show to en­sure it’s a fresh take on Pi­rates of Pen­zance,” Mr John­son said.

“There will be some­thing for ev­ery­one in this pro­duc­tion, whether you are a die-hard Gilbert and Sul­li­van fan, or some­one ex­pe­ri­enc­ing mu­si­cal theatre for the first time.”
