    Pirates! is an adaptation of the operetta without the music. On turning 21, Frederic is released from his apprenticeship with a band of soft-hearted pirates. He hears a chorus of girls and falls instantly in love with Mabel, the daughter of Major General Stanley. Complications abound when Frederic learns that, because he was born on Leap Day, a day that occurs every four years, he has had far fewer birthdays and is still indentured to the pirates! This hilarious adaptation uses some of the original song lyrics as dialogue. Learn More

    This gender-bending historical drama is based on Emma Edmond's memoir when she enlists as Frank Thompson and serves as a male nurse, spy and soldier during the Civil War.
