Our middle and high school students are looking forward to performing The Pirates of Penzance, Jr. on May 2 & 3! Headed by a Co-op couple who are long-time professional theatre veterans, the vision and focus of the Co-op’s own theatre troupe, Cornerstone Youth Theatre Project, is to provide professional production values while teaching top-notch acting skills to students in the pursuit of beauty, truth and goodness (and to spread a little fun!). Below is a little about our featured production which will be fun for the whole family!

Get ready for a unique swashbuckling musical journey! THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE JR. is a hilarious musical farce including sentimental pirates, bumbling policemen, dim-witted young lovers, dewy-eyed daughters and an eccentric Major-General, all morally bound to the often-ridiculous dictates of honor and duty. 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 twenty-first year. Finally having served the full length of his required time with the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen – which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice. This turns out to be a tricky prospect indeed, especially when Frederic’s freedom is called into question!
