The Pirates of Penzance
– a performance to help raise funds for the Balsam Family Project (Charity Commission registered No. 1129896)
An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’! The twists and turns of this classic operetta unfold with ingenious characters, sublime lyrics and some of the best-known songs in opera!
Balsam Family Project Nurturing families in our community
Balsam Family Project was founded in 2009 with a vision to create a sense of family for parents/carers and their young children where unconditional love and friendship could be taught, modeled and experienced. In January 2010 the first parenting & home management course was piloted. These 10 week Family College Courses are now firmly established together with weekly Family Days for parent/carer & baby/toddler; social events; and ongoing one-to-one family mentoring/befriending through a Community Family Friend for each family.
Balsam Family Project is a Christian charity which seeks to express God’s special compassion for all families following biblical principles of love, honour and restoration. We believe in the value of every adult and child and seek to encourage a sense of worth and value that parents can then pass on to their own children.
