Gazela leaves port for day sails in June

posted in: Events, Gazela, News, Training | 0

Gazela left her home port at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia for two day sails on the Delaware River in June. The first sail, on June 10, served as training for our all-volunteer crew, who spent the afternoon setting and dousing sails, as well practicing man overboard and fire drills. On June 17, guests were invited on board to learn more about Gazela and the work of the Guild to preserve and maintain her.

posted in: Events, Features, News | 0

Seven Deadly Seas, the amazing Pirate, Comedy, and Burlesque shows on the Tall Ship Gazela are back!

Seven Deadly Seas is a theater-in-the-round-and-under-the-stars experience that was listed in TimeOut New York’s newsletter as “Best of the Week”. Combining live music,elaborate props, original comedy, and stunning burlesque, Seven Deadly Seas is known for creating shows call back to old vaudeville times, while taking a fresh look at comedy, politics and “entertainment for grown-ups.”

As in previous shows in the series, The Greater of Two Evils explores current political events through the highly warped lens of real-life pirates Calico Jack Rackham, Anne Bonney, and Mary Reed. This time, our heroes awaken from one hell of a bender to discover they have made some questionable choices while under the influence. This much-too-merry band must now fight, sing, and strip their way out of the mess they’ve gotten themselves into. The show will be performed in the round aboard Gazela and will feature live music, dancing girls, sword fights, and a variety of classic vaudeville-style entertainment.

Proceeds will help support the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild’s efforts to restore and maintain the historic Tall Ship Gazela and Tug Jupiter.

Tickets can be purchased either online or at the door (cash only at door.) Thursday, September 1st will be a discounted preview night. VIP tickets will be available Friday through Sunday.
