Baltimore's summertime favorite. Young Vic is a summer repertory theatre dedicated to the works of Gilbert & Sullivan. With a professional orchestra, choreography and staging, we attract the best in young musical talent from across the nation.
Young Frederic has just turned 21 and is ready to leave his apprenticeship to a band of softhearted pirates. But with his strong sense of duty, he painfully declares that once free, he is obligated to wipe out their gang. That is, until a ridiculous leap year snag threatens to keep him apprenticed to the pirates for life!
Featuring gorgeous music, a bevy of beautiful girls, a swaggering Pirate King, a stuffy Major-General and a zany police force, The Pirates of Penzance is a hilarious show for the whole family.
The Young Victorian Theatre Company is Baltimore's beloved Gilbert & Sullivan musical theatre company. Now in our fifth decade, we have grown from a group of high school students into a full-fledged performing arts organization that regularly garners praise from audiences and the media.
Artistically esteemed and fiscally stable, Young Vic is committed to producing professional-level productions of the G&S canon. We're Baltimore’s longest tenured musical theatre and part of our mission is to attract young people to this art form, either in the seats or onstage in a production.
We occasionally email our friends and patrons with news about our shows, special events and discounts. We promise not to bug you and you can unsubscribe at anytime.
Young Vic performances are on the campus of Roland Park Country School, 5204 Roland Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland.
The theatre entrance is located at the north end of campus, not far from the campus entrance. Signs are posted to direct you to the doors. There is an accessible ramp leading to the doors of the theatre. And inside there is another accessible ramp leading to the box office.
Parking is available in several areas on campus and on Roland Avenue. Elderly and handicapped patrons can be dropped off near the theatre entrance where a courtesy cart will drive them to the doors.
The auditorium aisles are stepped, so if you need assistance, please see an usher.
Or please call the box office so we can help you choose the most appropriate seating location.
Access from the parking lot to the box office is all accessible for handicapped patrons. Inside the theatre, there are a limited number of wheelchair spots available for each performance.
Some partially handicapped patrons may be more comfortable sitting in a seat in the last two or three rows. Sightlines and acoustics are excellent throughout the auditorium.
Please call the box office so we can help you choose an appropriate seating location.
The theatre features excellent acoustics and views of the stage with its "stadium" auditorium seating style, where all seat rows are higher than the seats immediately in front.
As a result, the auditorium aisles are stepped and not sloped. So if you have any difficulty navigating steps, please call the box office so we can help you choose an appropriate seating location.
The auditorium is air conditioned and while we try to ensure that everyone is comfortable, some patrons may want to bring a light sweater or jacket.
Young Vic performances are great fun for the whole family. And this year we have a special Family Night on Thursday July 16. The show starts 30 minutes earlier at 7:30 and tickets are available at a reduced price. Buy tickets at the Box Office.

Please note that the group discount is not available on Family Night, which is already discounted.
All performances are enhanced with projected surtitles above the auditorium stage.
It's a lot of fun staging a theatrical production. And a lot of work too! We always need volunteers for ushering, stage crew, social media and more. Please fill out our brief volunteer form.
