    The Pirates of Penzance: In Concert

    Set sail with this rollicking, delightfully funny tale of a band of soft-tempered pirates.  Mistakenly apprenticed to a band of tenderhearted, orphaned pirates by his nursemaid Ruth at the age of eight, the handsome Frederic, upon completing his 21st year, rejoices that he has fulfilled his indentures and is now free to return to respectable society.  But it turns out that he was born on February 29 in a leap year, and he remains apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday!  By the end of the opera, the pirates, a Major General who knows nothing of military strategy, his large family of beautiful but unwed daughters (including Mabel, who steals Frederic’s heart) and a band of lily-livered policemen contribute to a cacophony that can only be silenced by Queen Victoria’s name.  Beloved since its premiere in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance is a delightful farce of a classic, fun for all ages!
