Oh, poor Frederic! The protagonist of Gilbert and Sullivan’s popular comic opera The Pirates of Penzance finds himself indentured to a kind-hearted crew until his 21th birthday. But, being born in a leap year, Frederic must swab the decks until he is in his eighties. To complicate matters further, the young buck is in love with Mabel, the daughter of a major-general. Thankfully, she agrees to wait for him until his servitude is complete, but not before some hysterical high jinks involving her sisters, father and pilfering pirates get in the way. Catch the classic story, staged in the Skinner Barn Theater Company’s elegant outbuilding, throughout the week.

Price: $25.
