Skyline Theatre Company Kicks Off Season with Rousing Pirates of Penzance Concerts!
In Pirates, Frederic, performed for Skyline by Nick Cartell (Off-Broadway's Frankenstein) is apprenticed to a band of tenderhearted, orphaned pirates, led by the raucous Pirate King. Upon completing his 21st year, Fredric is free to return to respectable society. But it turns out that he was born on February 29 in leap year, and he remains apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. By the end of the operetta, the pirates, a Major General, his beautiful but unwed daughters, and the timid constabulary all contribute to the cacophony.
STC's season of classics continues on Saturday, December 17 at 2pm with a new version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol performed in a one man tour de force. Skyline's season concludes May 18-20, 2012, with a true American classic, Thornton Wilder's Our Town.
