Hit floating 'Pirates' to return

The innovative aquatic production of W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance," as performed on the Tall Ship Windy, is coming back for an  encore weekend this fall.

There are to be floating shows at 5:45 p.m. on both Sept. 22 and 23. Tickets to previous cruises went quickly. The entire 90-minute cruise is occupied by a performance of the operetta, replete with a full-sized cast and live music crammed on to this relatively small vessel.
