Synopsis

An evening of two Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

The Pirates of Penzance: Young Frederic has turned 21 and thus completed his apprenticeship to a band of kindhearted pirates. He falls for Mabel, the lovely daughter of law-enforcer Major-General Stanley, only to learn that his birthday falls on Feb. 29, which means he is technically still a pirate.
