Pirate Crew

Pirates

The pirates are not called by name, but in the original London production two of them were Grumbuskin, Growltiger's bucko mate, and Tumblebrutus, his bosun, and were played by the same actors as the ones who played Munkustrap and Alonzo. This was also true on Broadway and in both productions Skimbleshanks and Mistoffelees have always played pirates, but in London Alonzo no longer does. He was replaced by either Rum Tum Tugger or Victor. Until 2000 George was also a pirate in London, but left the show when Steven Wayne retired.
