or the Rascals of the Rappahannock

The Pirates of Penzance with a delightful twist! Gilbert and Sullivan’s beloved comic operetta is as appealing today as it was over a century ago. But instead of the rocky coast of Cornwall, we are in late eighteenth century Virginia, when King George III ruled the colony. The famous soft-hearted pirates (lately of Penzance) are endeavoring to plunder with aplomb along the banks of the famous Rappahannock River. Meanwhile, the blundering Redcoats of the British army are desperately trying to keep tabs on both the pirates and the befuddled Major General George Boshington. Hilarity ensues as the young apprentice Frederick leaves the rollicking band of pirates and falls in love with Boshington’s beautiful daughter Mabel. The Pirates of Penzance – The Rascals of the Rappahannock promises to be a production to delight all ages with marvelous music, funny patter and glorious singing providing entertainment full of laughter, fun and frolic.
