Frederic, orphaned at a young age and mistakenly apprenticed to a rather ineffectual band of pirates, falls in love with Mabel, whose father is the very model of a modern Major-General. Caught between love for Mabel and piratical duty, Frederic sets in motion a hilarious sequence of events with pirates chasing daughters, daughters chasing police, and police chasing pirates. Will love win the day? Ready your funny bones and set sail to find out.

Join us in an intimate black box setting as 10 actors take on more than 30 roles in Gilbert and Sullivan's most beloved tale of duty, courtship, and piracy!
