This opera has been proven to keep audiences entertained and laughing until the very end.
said Audra Miller, fifth-year senior from Hesston, who plays Ruth, the pirates’ maid-of-all-work.
Pirates of Penzance is a comedy, definitely,
It’s high-energy, and it’s gonna look cool.
Plus, she added,
It’s good to be cultured every once in a while.
The Pirates of Penzance, or The Slave of Duty, is about a goofy band of sappy pirates, a major general’s large family of girls, some policemen and all of their shenanigans.
