SHIVER me timbers, pirates run riot at Montgomery Town Hall this Saturday night, July 13, when 'The Pirates of Penzance' is performed by Kington and District Operatic Society (KADOS).

The amateur company re-stage their acclaimed production of the Gilbert and Sullivan comic opera at 7.30pm in the newly refurbished venue.

'The Pirates' is one of the best-known of Gilbert’s comic librettos, with its timorous policemen, swashbuckling pirates, mix-ups and a bevy of beautiful Cornish maidens.

All this is set to Sullivan’s inimitable and sparkling music that will have you smiling and humming along.

Tickets at £7.50 are now available from Bunners Ironmongers, or by phoning 01686 669730.

KADOS was formed in 1967 as the Kington Gilbert & Sullivan Society with a performance of 'HMS Pinafore'. This played to packed houses and met with such acclaim that the 'Pirates of Penzance' followed in 1968, along with a name change.

Ambition grew to producing several shows and concerts a year, including other light operas and operettas as well as an annual community pantomime.

KADOS has delighted audiences for over 50 years and continues to give performances of a consistently high standard, providing a great night of entertainment for both audience and cast.
