Pirate Week: Pirates of Penzance.

This delightful musical follows Frederic, a pirate apprentice, who is released from his apprenticeship and promptly falls in love with a general’s daughter. However, their love becomes complicated when Frederic learns that he was born on a leap day and so he owes another 63 years of service to the pirates! How will he be faithful to his oath and his love?

(Sure, maybe The Pirates of Penzance should be celebrated on February 29th, but that’s hard to come by.)

How to commemorate:

  • Sing all the songs! (spotify) Bonus points for sending us a recording of you singing the “Modern Major General.”
