The show must go on, but how? The Playhouse 395 “Pirates of Penzance Jr.” cast of young actors recently took a break from a dress rehearsal to reflect on the artistic process.
First-time director Debbie Clarkson has been at the helm of a crew of green horns with big talent during the three-month “Pirates” production process. Curtains will go up for the first show at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 in Bishop Union High School’s Dorothy Johnson Auditorium, 305 N. Fowler St., Bishop. Other show times are 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16, Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23, with 2 p.m. matinees on both Saturdays.
The plot of “Pirates” plays out under the umbrella of conflict between Pirate King of the high seas and Major General of Cornwall, England, the father of four maidens of marrying years.
