The story revolves around Frederic, now 21 and released from his “apprenticeship” to a band of pirates. Having come of age, Frederic announces that he loathes piracy and, since his term of indenture is complete, he will be leaving in hopes of finding a suitable wife. He meets the daughters of Mayor-General Stanley, including Mable, and the two instantly fall in love. But Frederic’s vocation as a pirate stands in the way of their union. The Pirates of Penzance features witty humor, memorable characters and contains such popular numbers as “Major-General’s Song,” “Poor Wand’ring One,” “Climbing Over Rocky Mountains” and “Stay, Frederic, Stay.”

The cast includes William Kahn as the Major General, Bill Diggle as the Pirate King, Elizabeth Mirandi as Mabel, Caleb Wenger as Frederic, and 18 other talented actors and actresses.
