Pirates will once again be seen in Mount Pleasant when Moultrie Middle School presents Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance,” Tuesday March 26 and Wednesday March 27 at 7 p.m.
The show is a rollicking bit of musical fun with maidens, pirates and police all bound by a comedic sense of duty. The story follows Frederick, who having been mistakenly indentured to a band of incompetent pirates, tries to return to the civilian world of responsibility — and maidens. This production includes versions of the classic songs: “Modern Major General” and “I Am A Pirate King.” Tickets are $5 and will be available to purchase at the door.
The cast includes Evan Haithcock as Frederick, Will Basco as the Pirate King, Anna Shirley as Ruth, Claire Marosok as Mabel, Spencer Margosian as the Major General, MacKenzie Fowler as Samuel and Will Kerr as the Sergeant of Police.
