Greenwood Lander Performing Arts will close out its 2012-2013 season on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m., with a rousing performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance.”

The comic operetta in two acts was the only Gilbert & Sullivan production to make its debut in the U.S. Since its New York City premiere in 1879, “Pirates” has endured as one of the best loved and internationally acclaimed creations of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.

The production at Lander University’s Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium will be performed by New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players (NYGASP) accompanied by an orchestra.

NYGASP was founded in 1974 as street theatre and it has grown to become America’s pre-eminent professional Gilbert & Sullivan repertory company with 13 productions in its repertoire.

The organization was co-founded by Albert Bergeret, now its artistic director and one of entertainment’s most widely recognized conductors and stage and musical directors. NYGASP is dedicated to the professional performance of Gilbert & Sullivan operettas and to building new audiences for them.

The N.Y. Times described the NYGASP performance as “an endearing production with high musical standards and spirited performance.”

Tickets for “Pirates of Penzance” are available on GLPA’s Internet site: www.greenwoodlanderperformingarts.com or by calling the GLPA office at 864-388-8326.

The performance is sponsored by Wesley Commons in Greenwood.
