Pirates of Penzance

"Come friends who plow the sea, truce to navigation, take another station. Let's vary piracy with a little burglary!"

This weekend and next, there's a operetta playing on campus called The Pirates of Penzance, and I saw it last Sunday, and enjoyed it quite a bit. Don't let the fact that it's an 'Opera' scare you away from it, because it's a COMIC opera, that was quite silly. Here's a quick synopsis:

~Frederic, a man of 21 years, was apprenticed to a band of pirates by accident by his hard of hearing nursemaid. When he leaves the pirate gang, he swears to exterminate them by his strong sense of duty. Until of course, they bring to his attention that since he was born on February 29th on a leap year, he actually only had 5 birthdays, and was indentured to them until his 21st birthday. His overwhelming sense of duty forces him back into their gang in much hilarity.

I liked it a lot, and I totally think anyone should see it if they can. :]
In fact, I'm going to see it again next weekend!
