A group of pirates celebrate the coming of age of their apprentice, Frederic. But Frederic, an honest chap apprenticed to the pirates by mistake, plans to exercise his new maturity by turning the pirates over to the police. The arrival of a chorus of young beauties on a beach outing with their father, Major-General Stanley, distracts Frederic and leads to one complication after another. In a final hilarious battle with the police, a surprising discovery about the origins of the pirates saves the day. Featuring the London Symphony Orchestra and the Ambrosian Opera Chorus and starring Keith Michell, Alexander Oliver, Janis Kelly, Paul Hudson and Peter Allen.
