Sasha Regan’s All Male The Pirates of Penzance cast announced, plus second date in the West End confirmed

Nimax Theatres have added a second night for Sasha Regan’s all-male take on W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue.  The show will now run on Saturday 12th December and Sunday 13th December 2020 at 7:00pm.  

The production was meant to open at Wilton’s Music Hall and then tour but those plans have had to be cancelled and postponed respectively. For the uninitiated, Regan’s reinvigoration of this classic is a corker, I’ve seen it a couple of times now over the years and it never fails to delight.

The show’s producers, Sasha Regan and Ben De Wynter are delighted to extend the run.  “We have been inundated with requests for more dates,” explains Regan.  “There is a real demand from theatregoers who are crying out to see Gilbert & Sullivan’s much-loved operetta. Post-lockdown, people want to see something that makes them smile again. Gilbert & Sullivan’s traditional and very funny Victorian comic opera provides the perfect laughter tonic. It’s ideal for families.” 

The cast for this revival includes: Marc Akinfolarin (Sergeant of Police); Michael Burgen (Samuel); James Chidzey (Ensemble); Leon Craig (Ruth); Tom Duern (Ensemble); Joel Elferink; Matthew Facchino (Ensemble); Lee Greenaway (Connie); Dominic Harbison (Kate); Sam Kipling (Edith); David McKechnie (Major General); Daniel Miles (Ensemble); Alan Richardson (Mabel); Richard Russell Edwards (Isabel); Oliver Savile (Pirate King); Tom Senior (Frederic); and Benjamin Vivian-Jones (Ensemble).
