About the Musical
Frederic, apprenticed as an infant to a crew of notoriously soft-hearted pirates, falls in love with Mabel, one of the many wards of Major-General Stanley. But the terms of Frederic’s indenture, along with his own keen sense of duty, keep the lovers apart. How can this sorry state of affairs be resolved?
