The Pirates of Penzance
We attended the Pirates of Penzance at the SJC theater on Friday night. Musicals are hard for small schools because they require more depth of singing talent than is often available. This year SJC had enough talent to pull it off. True, the police choir was all female, and the pirate choir had four girls and only two guys, but the Pirate King and Mabel, the female lead, were excellent, and the Major General was awesome. It was one of the best musical productions I have seen at SJC. If you enjoy musical theater and are looking for something to do Saturday night, go see it.
