Full of sentimental pirates, blundering policemen, absurd adventures, and improbable paradoxes, we bring you a brand-new production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious farce! The story follows the misadventures of young Frederic, an orphan apprenticed to a raucous band of pirates until his twenty-first birthday. After leaving the pirates’ way of life, Frederic falls for the beautiful Mabel, whose father is Major General Stanley. But, when Frederic’s former boss, the Pirate King discovers the Major General’s secret plot, complications abound. Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts some of the most memorable tunes in operetta.
