Cllr Onnalee Cubitt said: “I look forward to a wonderful evening and hope to welcome as many residents as possible to watch this fantastic performance.

“This will be a great opportunity to support the borough’s artistic community and celebrate the centenary of the talented Basingstoke Amateur Operatic Society.

“With the proceeds from my charity appeal, you will also be supporting two wonderful local charities.”

Featuring such beloved songs as A Policeman’s Lot is Not a Happy One, I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General and Poor Wandering One, the semi-stage production follows the hilarious and incompetent pirates, a well-promoted major-general above his abilities and his multitude of beautiful girls.
