    Esperero Canyon

    Proudly Presents:

    Pirates of Penzance, Jr.

    Directed By: Ms. Higgins & Ms. Merry

    If you enjoy singing, acting or dancing, come be a part of the cast in this year's school musical production!

    Set sail with this classic Gilbert & Sullivan comedy, a swashbuckling musical journey! Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall, England, "The Pirates of Penzance, Jr." begins with a group of pirates who are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his 21st year. Finally having served the full length of his required time the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen- which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice.

    The musical is open to ALL ECMS students who would like to participate (no experience necessary). Students should plan to audition in order to be considered for any of the lead or featured roles. All audition information will be available on Ms. Higgins's website HERE by the end of November.
