Young pirate-in-training Frederic can’t wait for his 21st birthday, the day his erroneous pirate apprenticeship ends….or does it? Born in a Leap Year, Frederic discovers he must remain with the raucous band and delay a future with the lovely Mabel who promises to wait, much to the chagrin of her father, the Major General. Bound by his own sense of duty and loyalty to the Pirate King, will Frederic be forced to sail away into the sunset alone or fly high on the seas of love?
Gilbert brings the best patter song in all of opera and Sullivan makes us swoon with catchy tunes in this funny and hopeful farce of an operetta. Add SDO favorite Greer Grimsley and his family in the lead roles and you’ll be hooked on this swashbuckling favorite about love, laughter and loyalty.
