LTS logo Music departments Lyric Theatre Society to premiere operetta parodyGEORGETOWN, KY – 1 tenor + 1 soprano = operatic happily ever after, right? WRONG.

The Georgetown College Department of Music’s Lyric Theatre Society presents the world premiere of “The Pirates of Pinafore” in November in John L. Hill Chapel.

With book, new lyrics and direction by Heather Winter Hunnicutt, associate professor of music and department chair, “The Pirates of Pinafore” is described as a “ridiculously silly operetta parody based on characters and themes of Gilbert & Sullivan.”

They are priced at $10 each for adults and non-students, and $5 each for students with ID. Children age 10 and under are admitted free. Group discounts available.

H.M. Lewis conducts the Georgetown College orchestra. Non-original music and lyrics by Sir Arthur Sullivan and W.S. Gilbert.
