The Riverside Center for the Performing Arts in Fredericksburg, Virginia, is proud to present Gilbert & Sullivan's comedic operetta, The Pirates of Penzance or the Rascals of the Rappahannock, starring Claire Leyden as Mabel, Samual Keeler as Frederic, Andrew Wynn as the Major General, and DC-area favorites Sheri Edelen as Ruth and David Jennings as the Pirate King.
The Pirates of Penzance with a delightful twist! The blundering Redcoats of the British army are desperately trying to keep tabs on both the pirates and the befuddled Major General George Boshington. Hilarity ensues as the young apprentice Frederick leaves the rollicking band of pirates and falls in love with Boshington's beautiful daughter Mabel. The Pirates of Penzance or the Rascals of the Rappahannock promises to be a production to delight all ages with marvelous music, funny patter & glorious singing providing entertainment full of laughter & frolic.
