ShoeString Community Players in Columbia County, Oregon.

ShoeString Community Players is pleased to announce its summer musical in July 2014 will be Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance.” The story of a lad Frederic, who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley, and the two young people fall instantly in love. Frederic finds out, however, that he was born on 29 February, and so, technically, he only has a birthday each leap year. His apprenticeship indentures state that he remains apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday, and so he must serve for another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty, Frederic’s only solace is that Mabel agrees to wait for him faithfully. Sets and costuming to be done in steampunk theme. A musical to remember!
