Gilbert & Sullivan’s classic operetta pokes fun at stuffy British society, politics, and buccaneering bravado while showcasing timeless musical numbers such as “Cat Like Tread” and “Poor Wandering One.” This is a special presentation featuring local theatre veterans as well as alumni of The Nevada County Performing Arts Guild (PAG), the areas award-winning childrens theater organization. The operetta is a benefit for PAG.
Soprano Sierra Dallugge is felicitously cast in the lead role of Mabel. Dallugge, an alumnus of PAG, was the 2011 recipient of the Laura June Breen Vocal Competition (InConcert Sierra) and was crowned 1st place winner in the People’s Choice category after she brought down the house during her final performance at Nevada County’s Top Talent (2010). Dallugge is a perennial audience favorite who first sang the role of Mabel, many years ago, when she was only 13 years old. Dallugge’s sweet soprano will bring shivers to the timbers of anyone listening, be they pirate or land lubber!
The Pirates of Penzance also features Kevin Freeman, as the dangerous and dashing Pirate King; Sloane Morton as Mabel’s prospective paramour, Frederick; and Adam Morton as the marvelously inept Sergeant. David Crouthamel makes his Nevada County stage debut as the (modern) Major General Stanley.
Thursday night’s opening performance is a special preview where all seats are attractively priced at $10. On Saturday, June 11, a Champagne Gala Performance will feature bubbly, appetizers, desserts, and a no-host bar — all for one admission price. There will also be a raffle, and silent auction items. All proceeds benefit Nevada County Performing Arts Guild.
Its a GAS will host a special “Dress Like A Pirate Night” the second Friday (June 17), where anyone who dons high seas attire gains admission for a piece of eight ($8).
Its A GAS! Theatre Troupe is a fundraising wing of PAG and features PAG staff, alumni and veterans among its crew of performers.
