3:00 PM Stage: The Pirates Of Penzance Jr. Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history. The wit and whimsy of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic score is suffused with a modern sensibility in "The Pirates of Penzance JR.," a swashbuckling musical journey!

Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall, England, "The Pirates of Penzance JR." begins with a group of pirates who are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his 21st year.

Finally, having served the full length of his required time with the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen - which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice. This turns out to be a tricky prospect indeed, especially when Frederic's freedom is called into question!
