Gilbert and Sullivan's high-seas-themed comedic opera brings to life the tale of the Pirate King. Under the direction of Dominic Missimi, the musical follows the struggles of young Frederic, who is mistakenly apprenticed to a band of orphaned pirates. As it turns out, his leap year birthday threatens both his release from servitude and his budding romance with Mabel, the daughter of a major general. On Wednesday and Thursday evenings, a limited number of Dinner & Theatre tickets are available for $55. Free parking is available at all performances.
