'The Pirates of Penzance'
San Francisco's acclaimed Lamplighters present their uproarious production of the swashbuckling "The Pirates of Penzance," running at 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Aug. 1-2; and 2 p.m. Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 2-3 at Lesher Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek. In one of the most popular comic operas of all time, meet Frederic, an orphan lad who finds himself the victim of his nursemaid’s hearing impediment after she mistakenly apprentices him to a pirate instead of to a pilot. Under the terms of his apprenticeship, Frederic is bound to serve his pirate captain until his 21st birthday. Unfortunately for Frederic, he was born on February 29 in a Leap Year; and, thus, despite his moral scruples and attraction to the Major-General’s daughter Mabel, he feels himself bound as a "slave of duty" to remain a pirate until well into middle age! Tickets are $20-$54. Call 943-7469 or go to lesherartscenter.org. Lesher Center for the Arts, 1601 Civic Drive, Walnut Creek.
