The Pirates of Penzance

Young Frederic is about 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 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.

About Young Vic

HMS Pinafore, 2017
HMS Pinafore, 2017

Young Vic is Baltimore's Gilbert & Sullivan company. We began in 1971 as an enthusiastic group of high school students and have evolved into an acclaimed and full-fledged performing arts organization today.

Our professional-caliber productions attract a wide range of promising young talent and accomplished performers. Members of our casts and orchestra have performed on local, national and international stages.

Now in our fifth decade, Young Vic's fiscal responsibility, stable leadership and artistic excellence makes it Baltimore's longest tenured musical theatre and is well supported by the community.

Our mission is to expose Baltimore’s diverse community to distinctive and entertaining musical theatre; foster classically trained and talented artists; and attract new and young audiences who will enjoy the popular and timeless works of Gilbert & Sullivan.

Please show your support and donate as a patron or contact us to become a volunteer.



Young Vic performances are on the campus of Gilman School, 5407 Roland Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland.

Location details

Senior Citizens

There are two main interior aisles in the auditorium with no access against the left and right walls, so if you need assistance, please see an usher. Even better, please call the box office so we can help you choose the most appropriate seating location.


The theatre is handicap accessible, although 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. Sight lines and acoustics are very good throughout the auditorium. Please call the box office so we can help you choose an appropriate seating location.

Air Conditioning

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.

Family Night

Young Vic performances are great fun for the whole family. The show starts 1 hour earlier at 7:00 and tickets are available at a reduced price. Buy tickets at the Box Office. Please note that group rates are not available for this performance.


All performances are enhanced with surtitles of the lyrics projected 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. Interested? Reach us by using our contact form.
