About the show:
A hilarious farce of sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers and an eccentric Major-General. This story follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual, but raucous, band of pirates. He disavows the pirates’ way of life and falls for the beautiful Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. Frederic wins the heart of Mabel, but when the Pirate King discovers that General Stanley has lied about being an orphan to keep the pirates from stealing all of his belongings and carrying off his bevy of beautiful daughters, an “ingenious paradox” may prevent the budding romance and lead to the death of “the very model of a modern Major-General.”
