Presenting the rollicking classic operetta……but set in the 1950s! Think, “The Outsiders” meets Annette and Frankie’s “Beach Party.” Frederic, a junior “pirate”, has fulfilled his indenture, and leaves his rebellious gang. But instead of sticking with Ruth, his nurse-maid, he falls for the beatnik beauty, Mabel. Amid Fred and Mabel’s courtship, the “pirate” gang return to confront Fred, Mabel, Mabel’s sisters, and their father, “Major” General Stanley. A goofy gaggle of Lifeguard Police, and their Sergeant, arrive on the scene, attempting to save the day. Accompanied by the WLHS Symphonic Choir and members of the WLHS Orchestra and Symphonic Band, the production promises to be an energetic and humorous dive back into live theatre. We cordially invite you to safely join the party November 12, 13, 18, 19, or 20 at 7pm.
