Friends, families, neighbors, pets, pirates, ladies and orphans. Join us for SVP's youth production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance Jr! This hilarious farce is filled with sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty.

Join us for this wacky and irreverent show for all ages. Book and Lyrics by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert, music by Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan. Show dates are July 25-27 & August 1-3 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2:30pm at the Chief Theater located at 25 East Park Avenue in Chiefland.

Casting Call

Director: Andy Kidd

SVP announces auditions for Of Mice & Men on Tuesday, July 29, at 7pm and Saturday, August 2, at 10am, at the Chief Theater. The cast consists of ten roles: 9 men and one woman. One of John Steinbeck’s most acclaimed works, this American classic chronicles four days in the lives of migrant workers, George and Lennie. Unlikely friends, they move from town to town hoping to work and save enough to own their own piece of land. But Lennie stirs up trouble, and George must choose between his friend and his dream. This vivid picture of the Great Depression conveys a tale of friendship, loneliness and unfortunate circumstances for even “the best laid schemes of mice and men.” Winner of Best Play by the New York Drama Critic’s Circle. For more information, please contact director Andy Kidd at or 352-949-6689. This play is presented by special arrangements with Dramatists Play Service.
