ARTWORK BY AMANDA R. WILSON

The Pirates of Penzance, one of the most popular comic operas of all time, is a treasure-filled musical extravaganza teaming with dazzling damsels in distress, rugged rogues and swashbuckling pirates! Follow the fortunes of Frederic, who has been mistakenly apprenticed to the Pirate King. Now completing his 21st year of indentured service, he rejoices in his freedom. His dreams are dashed when his leap year birthday (February 29) is discovered, which means he must serve for another 63 years! A tempest begins to brew and mayhem reigns when Frederic falls for the lovely Mabel, the daughter of the “very modest of a modern Major General.”
