One of the most popular Gilbert & Sullivan operas, The Pirates of Penzance is a thoroughly entertaining show. The story centers around Frederic as he reaches his 21st birthday and must decide between the life of a pirate or of a policeman. Having apprenticed as a pirate for his life thus far, he is innocent to the ways of the world, and when he meets Mabel, he is struck by love. Mabel, the daughter of the Major General, cannot be pledged to a pirate, and so the story unfolds. Come hear the famous patter song "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General."
