Come along for a rollick on the high seas in this new production full of adventure, gentlemanly pirates and General's daughters.
Join in on the exploits of Frederic, a young lad nearing the end of his apprenticeship to the infamous Pirates of Penzance. After finding out his hard of hearing nursemaid Ruth mistakenly apprenticed him to Pirates instead of pilots he vows to exterminate all Pirates in an attempt to atone for his past criminal deeds.
Upon reaching the mainland Frederic happens upon a bevy of beautiful young women to which he appeals to help him reform. Mabel, the major Generals daughter takes pity on him and sets the characters on a hilarious path of half truths, deceptions and revenge.
Through catchy songs and entertaining characters this endearing story will leave you wanting to set sail on your own piratey adventure!
