We’re on a boat, in a shearing shed, in pools in music halls, schools & retirement homes!

Many of you will have seen Pirates of Penzance…but how many of you have seen it on a boat…on a moving boat!

This wonderfully funny adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic operetta is staged in one hour, with a local South Australian cast of only eight and live piano accompaniment. Emma Knights Productions’ Pirates of Penzance is an immersive experience that is set aboard boats across South Australia as well as in music halls, shearing sheds, pools, schools and pretty much anywhere we fit!

Pirates of Penzance or A Slave To Duty is one of G&S’s most loved operettas and tells the tale of Frederic and the Pirate King and what may happen when you see a bevvy of beautiful maidens. It is a family friendly show that is sure to make you laugh and features some outstanding South Australian talents. 

Our production is available for private bookings on or off a boat and has had sell-out Adelaide Fringe Festival seasons since 2014! It has been a part of the Pirates of Port Adelaide Festival, toured to Keith, been performed at Hortas with a special seafood meal, been performed in a pool with a blowup Flamingo, as well as sold out for retirement homes, Probus groups and music clubs.
