This year’s music class put on a theater show. It was called Pirates Of Penzance Jr. They spent months rehearsing and knowing what the play is about.

The basis of this story: a character named Frederic, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates. He meets Mabel, the daughter of Major-General Stanley. They fall instantly in love.

Frederic soon learns, however, that he was born on the 29th of February and technically, he has a birthday only once each leap year. His indenture specifies that he remain apprenticed to the pirates until his “twenty-first birthday”. Meaning that he must serve for another 63 years. Bound by his own sense of duty., he asks Mabel to wait for him.
