They're back! Chicago's most innovative theatre company, The Hypocrites, returns with an encore engagement of their critically-acclaimed, immersive and family-friendly version of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance. To complete the repertory, they will also be introducing Olney Theatre audiences to their zany take on H.M.S. Pinafore. Enjoy either show from the promenade, where you sit onstage and move around the set as the action dictates. And don't forget to bring the kids! They can hang out in the ball pit and experience these Gilbert and Sullivan classics in a way they're sure to love and never forget.
