Sheyenne High School set to premiere "Pirates of Penzance"

(North Dakota Today) - Gilbert and Sullivan’s satiric operetta Pirates of Penzance or the Slave of Duty is a whimsical tale of tender-hearted pirates, innocent maidens, their Major-General father, and bumbling policeman in Victorian England on a leap day, February 29th. Absurdity follows as each character grapples with the most supreme of virtues, doing one’s duty. This sense of duty is taken beyond reasonable norms and results in a most-humorous conclusion off the rocky shores of Cornwall.
