The Silk City Barbershop Chorus of Manchester will kick off its 51st annual year with a pirate spoof themed show on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014, at Manchester High School. 

The show, entitled "Save Our Ship,” will be held in the high school's auditorium and performed at 1:30 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m. 

The chorus describes this year's show as "a parody on the role and lives of pirates from mid- to late 19th century." The 40-member chorus, dressed in pirate costumes with playful accessories, will perform such tunes as  “Drunken Sailor,” “How Deep Is the Ocean,” “Son of the Sea” and “Yo Ho! A Pirate’s Life for Me.”

The performance will also feature two  a cappella groups: A Mighty Wind, visiting from Atlanta, and the Forefront quartet from Ohio. Both groups earned medals in the 2013 International Championships.

Advance seating prices are Primary (front 4 rows): $28; Secondary: $23; Classic: $20; Standard: $17. Doors will open one hour before the show's opening. Parking is free. The facility is handicap accessible.
