BREC and South West Opera Company Inc present

Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance

Pour, o pour the pirate Sherry!

This year, SWOC’s rollicking band of seafaring misfits are back treading the boards in the most popular and hilarious of all Gilbert and Sullivan’s works – The Pirates of Penzance.

Follow Frederick, the slave to duty, as he leaves his pirate fold, and begins a mission to exterminate his former crewmates. Along the way, there is love, catchy tunes and a twist that changes everything!

We welcome all ye landlubbers to don your best pirate hat and join us for a rollicking, knees up ride on the high seas with the South West Opera Company’s talented crew of lovely ladies, acrobatic pirates, nimble policemen, the duty bound Frederick, the modernist of modern Major Generals and of course the charismatic and cheeky Pirate King himself!


Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by W. S. Gilbert
Director  Mary-Ellen Sutherland
Musical Director  Marguerite Monagle

About SWOC

Since 1986 The South West Opera Company Inc. (SWOC) has strived to bring the people of the South West and beyond a taste of quality music and theatrical experiences. Over many years, in partnership with BREC, SWOC have produced works of exceptional quality.

It’s most outstanding, ambitious, and successful production to date, was that of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical The Phantom of the Opera in 2018. With sold out shows and standing ovations at every curtain call, SWOC received great acclaim for the outstanding work – including a number of Robert Finley Award (WA Amateur Theatre Association) nominations and awards.

In 2021, SWOC and BREC collaborated again to bring its third production of the highly popular musical, Les Misérables, to the stage. Praise and awards were once again bestowed upon the production with audiences leaving the theatre in awe of the amateur company’s talent and energy.

Other highly successful shows presented at BREC include The Fiddler on the Roof in 2016, and Beauty and the Beast in 2014.
