East Brainerd Community Theater will present the musical The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert and Sullivan at Christ United Methodist Church July 11-14.  Show times are July 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. and July 14 at 2:30 p.m. 

The church is at 8645 East Brainerd Road (across from Publix).

Review for The Pirates of Penzance:

Directed by Katie Olsen and with musical direction by Andrew Chauncey and choreography by Rebecca Benedict, the show is a romantic musical comedy about sentimental pirates, a gaggle of fair maidens, blundering policemen and absurd adventures. 

Tickets are available online through Eventbrite and at Christ UMC July 1-10 during regular business hours. Tickets are $10 through July 10 and $15 starting July 11. All seats are general admission. 

With each performance, the Theater collects donations to benefit a local non-profit. All 2019 productions will benefit the Chattanooga Area Food Bank. Patrons who bring a canned food item to donate will receive a free small popcorn or beverage. Cash donations will also be accepted in the lobby before the show and at intermission.  The mission of the Chattanooga Area Food Bank is to lead a network of partners in eliminating hunger and promoting better nutrition in the region. 

East Brainerd Community Theater was founded in April 2013 with the production of Nunsense.  The Theater is a community outreach ministry of Christ United Methodist Church.  For more information, visit www.christchurchchatt.org, www.ebctchatt.com or follow on Facebook.
