What's Included

Set sail with this classic comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history. The wit and whimsy of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic score is suffused with a modern sensibility in The Pirates Of Penzance JR. a swashbuckling musical journey! Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall, England, The Pirates Of PenzanceJR. begins with a group of pirates who are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his twenty-first year. Finally having served the full length of his required time with the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen – which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice. Thus turns out to be a tricky prospect indeed, especially when Frederic’s freedom is called into question! As a light comic introduction to operatic themes, The Pirates Of Penzance JR. makes Gilbert and Sullivan easy to perform with young actors, featuring many opportunities for singing as an ensemble or in small groups. The show offers a great showcase for a large ensemble, with many great featured parts to showcase all levels of ability, include some great roles for performers with comedic skills. You are sure to be delighted by this must-perform musical, which is the very model of a comedic crowd-pleaser! Performances 7/4/15 (morning) and 7/5/15 (7:00 pm)

All campers attend daily class in acting, vocals, dance, stagecraft, amung others. Each camp culminates in a public performance for family and friends.
