Erroneously apprenticed to a band of pirates, Frederick serves them to the best of his considerable abilities. But upon his release at his 21st birthday, this "slave to duty" turns against the rogues who were his comrades. An irrepressible blend of music and farce featuring tenderhearted pirates, madcap policemen and true love.

Major-General Stanley: A one star-general in the British Army, Major-General Stanley is the protector of many young women, his wards. Must have excellent diction!
The Pirate King: A largely unsuccessful commander, the pirate king, although a flamboyant braggart, is too tender-hearted to do what pirates are supposed to do. Comedic and must move well.

Sergeant of Police: The leader of a bumbling squad of policemen, the good-natured sergeant of police is committed to stopping the pirates. Good mover.
