The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Houston presents ThePirates of Penzance. Sung in English, this family-friendly comic opera is filled with bright and infectious melodies, colorful costumes, and dialogue.

The story revolves around Frederic, who was mistakenly apprenticed to a band of tender-hearted pirates. Hoping to be released from his apprenticeship on his 21st birthday, Frederic soon realizes that having his birthday on February 29 means that he will have to serve for decades to come.

Meanwhile, Frederic meets the daughters of Major-General Stanley, including Mabel, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Mabel, innocent and sweet, agrees to faithfully wait for him. However, several questions loom: Will she wait? What becomes of Fredric? Are the pirates as tender-hearted as they claim?
