The Pirates of Penzance centers on the dilemma of young Frederic who, as a child, was mistakenly apprenticed to the pirates until his 21st birthday. The naive young man meets a group of beautiful girls and their father, the delightfully dotty Major-General, and enlists the help of some bumbling and diffident policemen. But Frederic won't be of age until his 21st birthday in 1940 because he was born in leap year on the 29th of February. Frederic is doomed to remain the pirate apprentice. The policemen try to capture the pirates, but are easily defeated. Everyone is happy to discover that the pirates are really all "noblemen who have gone wrong," so all is forgiven in the end.
