Join us for Saint Francis School’s production of The Pirates of Penzance Jr.!
Set on the rocky coast of Cornwall, England, The Pirates of Penzance JR. begins with a group of pirates who are celebrating the birthday of one of their own, Frederic, who has reached his 21st year. Finally having served the full length of his required time with the pirates, he decides to strike off on his own and become an upstanding citizen – which may even mean bringing the pirates to justice. Thus, turns out to be a tricky prospect indeed, especially when Frederic’s freedom is called into question!

Graduation may still be a few months away, but St. Francis School has already named its valedictorian. And for the first time in its 93-year history, a young man, David Murray, was given the honor.
David has a 4.2 GPA and is an avid reader and moviegoer.
“It’s a big honor,” he said. “I put a lot of time and effort into my academic work, so I feel that’s what got me to where I am now. Not much to say other than hard work and elbow grease basically.”
“He likes art, music and his interests remind me of a Renaissance man,” said assistant principal Erin Marshall.
David tells us his next step is to go to the University of Montana Western to major in English, so that he can hopefully become a screenwriter someday.
The school became coed in 2006. The student body is now 53 percent male.
