OUR SPRING SHOW IS.....
The Pirates of Penzance
WEDNESDAY 25TH - SATURDAY 28TH MARCH 2020 - 7.30PM
The Pirates of Penzance is a comic opera in two acts by Gilbert & Sullivan.
The story concerns Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates.
He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on the 29th of February, and so, technically, he has a birthday only once each leap year. His indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his "twenty-first birthday", meaning that he must serve for another 63 years.
Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic's only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully.
