Doing one’s duty may be honorable, but....

The Gilbert and Sullivan classic brought to life! Frederic is the erstwhile apprentice to a band of sentimental pirates who, now that he’s 21 years old, has decided to devote himself to ending piracy – until he discovers (in a classic “Gilbertian” twist) that his 21st birthday won’t occur until the distant date of 1940, because he was born in a leap year...on Feb. 29.

Kissing romantic Mabel farewell, he must return to his former colleagues…while the pirates seek revenge for having been played.

Now in its forty-sixth year of operation, New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players (NYGASP) is America’s preeminent professional Gilbert & Sullivan repertory ensemble. Under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Albert Bergeret, who has been hailed as “the leading custodian of the G&S classics” by New York Magazine, NYGASP has created its own very special niche in live theatre.
