Overview

The Pirates of Penzance

The Pirates of Penzance, is a rollicking, delightfully funny tale of a band of soft-tempered pirates.

Mistakenly apprenticed to a pirate the handsome Frederic is now twenty-one and dedicating himself instead to their eradication. Shortly after leaving them, he encounters a gaggle of beautiful maidens (one of whom, Mabel, steals his heart) and their father, the eccentric Major-General. The whole group has a run-in with the pirates before escaping on the false premise that the Major-General is an orphan — a fact the pirates simply cannot help but take into account, given the fact that the majority of them are orphans themselves and “know what it’s like.”

Just as Frederic is ready to lead a band of policemen to take out the Pirate King and his men, a secret is uncovered that will change his fate forever.

The Pirates of Penzance is a delightful farce of a classic that is fun for all ages.
