'Pirates of Penzance' at Kaimuki High School

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center is putting on "Pirates of Penzance," one of the most popular comic operettas written by the team of Gilbert and Sullivan. The musical features a rollicking band of pirates led by their swashbuckling Pirate King, a shrewd by stuffy Major General with a bevy of beautiful daughters, a pair of young lovers wrenched apart by misunderstanding and a misguided sense of duty, and a police force reminiscent of the Keystone Cops. The actors attend various public schools from Hawaii including Kaimuki, Aiea and Kalani High Schools and Washington, Dole and Kaimuki Middle Schools. Also represented are students from Myron Thompson Academy and Hokulani, Lehua and Kahala Elementary Schools.
