Pirates of Penzance

Pirates of Penzance Poster

Pirates of Penzance is a comic operetta that tells the story of Frederic, a young man mistakenly apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted pirates. When Frederic is released for his apprenticeship after turning 21, he falls in love with Mabel, a ward of Major-General Stanley. However, he soon discovers that he was born on Leap Day and is therefore bound to serve the pirates “until his 21st birthday” - some 60 years later! Hilarity, hijinks, and musical fun ensue in this light-hearted exploration of what it means to do one’s duty.
