Performing in this show include:

Rowan Crow, a first year from Coal Valley, Ill., majoring in history education. Crow will play the role of Maiden.

Ely Powers, a sophomore from Silvis, Ill., majoring in psychology. Powers will play the role of Pirate.

The daring, yet tenderhearted Pirates of Penzance are sure to take you on a hilarious adventure where you will encounter an unconventional major general, his doe-eyed daughters and a group of blundering policemen. As the pirates attempt to retain Frederic, their formerly apprenticed pirate, this cackle of sidesplitting characters battle the principles of honor and duty.

Brian Jozwiak, a sophomore music education major from Vernon Hills, Ill., who plays the Pirate King, is looking forward to sharing Gilbert and Sullivan's unique British humor with the audience. "The rehearsal process for this production has been extremely rewarding. Each of the cast members brings a unique perspective and together, we know how to have a really good time. We have worked hard for the past two months and are looking forward to finally presenting our finished product!"
