Pirates of Penzance
Many of you will have seen Pirates of Penzance, but how many of you have seen it on a boat, on a moving boat!
The Pirate King is back this year taking over the Dolphin Explorer and other venues!
This hilarious adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic operetta is staged in one hour, with a local cast of only eight, featuring some of South Australia's best performers. Live accompaniment on piano too!
This version is an immersive experience and has been hugely popular with sell-out Adelaide Fringe Festival seasons for the last five years!
The Dolphin Explorer cruise lasts two hours with the opportunity for dolphin watching! All other performances last one hour. The Hortas performance includes a 3-course meal.
Feel free to come orphan!
