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.
Free general seating reservations guarantee you early access to the island to pick a spot to sit, but you will still need to bring your own lawn chair or blanket.
VIP Level One Tickets will receive a reserved general admission seat in the Police and Hapless Maidens tent and a bottle of water.
VIP Level Two Tickets will receive a reserved general admission seat in the Pirate Kings tent along with two glasses of sparkling wine/champagne compliments of Barefoot Wine, a voucher to use at one of the Food Trucks (valued at $5) and a bottle of water and/or sparkling water or soft drinks.
VIP ticket buyers will have the opportunity to see this pirate ship up close:
