Welcome to The Centenary Company Home

The Centenary Company was founded in 1995 and specialises in the works of Gilbert & Sullivan, performing fully staged productions of G&S’s operas with orchestral accompaniment.

Shiver me timbers! It’s The Pirates of Penzance!

Tickets are on sale now for our rip-roaring 2018 production at the Albany in Deptford!

Featuring soft-hearted buccaneers, hard-nosed damsels and a lily-livered police force, The Pirates of Penzance is the classic comedy musical that makes Roger jolly!

They may not be terribly successful, but Cornwall’s best-behaved pirates have impeccable manners: they think it’s unsporting to attack anyone weaker than themselves, and their first thought upon capturing a group of beautiful young ladies is to propose marriage en masse. But when they discover they’ve been tricked into letting their captivating captives go free, they plan a grisly revenge… Can the cream of Cornish constabulary defeat them? Will true love triumph? And what is the pirates’ guilty secret?

Gilbert and Sullivan’s masterpiece combines inspired silliness with much-loved songs including I am the very model of a modern Major-GeneralWith catlike tread and A policeman’s lot is not a happy one – all presented with a live orchestra and bucketloads of brio by the Centenary Company.
