Argghh! Pirates of Penzance will delight young audiences at Hawaii Theatre

Each year, Hawaii Opera Theatre’s education department streamlines a full-length opera into a kid-friendly introduction to the world of classical opera. This year, HOT’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s popular comic operetta, The Pirates of Penzance will light up the Hawaii Theatre stage with one public OHANA! performance on Wednesday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m.

Appropriate for children in grades K-8, the show runs just under an hour, so it won’t be a late night for young audiences.

There will be two school matinee performances, November 5 & 6 at 9:15 a.m.
