Pirates of Penzance - The Attic

  • The Attic Theater (map)

This classic musical tells the story of Frederic, a boy mistakenly apprenticed to an exceptionally soft-hearted band of pirates (his hard-of-hearing nurse was meant to take him to a ship's pilot). When his apprenticeship comes to its end on his 21st year, he is released into society where he promptly falls in love with a Major-General's daughter. Just as he starts planning for his future, the pirates return to inform him that since his birthday falls on Leap Day, he still has another 63 years of apprenticeship before his actual 21st birthday. The score showcases many of Gilbert and Sullivan's wittiest and most engaging tunes, including the immortal "I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.
