Pirates of Penzance

Our Thanks (Again) To The Pirton Players!

We have become so used to the high standard set by the Pirton Players, that it was hardly a surprise to find their recent production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Pirates of Penzance’ to be of the highest order. Playing to four packed audiences the Players gave everyone over two hours of huge enjoyment. A super show.

The production was first class: acting, singing musical accompaniment. Costumes & design, wardrobe, properties and sets were all excellent. The lighting and sound, decoration of the village hall, catering, bar and front of house were equally good. Whilst hesitant to mention any particular individuals (everyone was good) one should make particular mention of Margaret Johnson and Paul Kerswill, whose combined skills gave us all such a memorable occasion. Thank you – to everyone involved. [Review taken from Pirton Parish Magazine]
