Pirates of Penzance in Austin TX

This is obviously NOT from the Gilbert and Sullivan Society here in Austin but since they don't have anything out on video, I'd give you a taste of the 'Modern Major General'.

This summer's production is the Pirates of Penzance. Last night I volunteered as usher (am about to nap, I got to bed late and my brain is affected with not enough sleep) and this Saturday I will do the same. The fun part is that everybody has a day job but loves to do this anyway. How often do people want to pursue something in entertainment but solely want the recognition and attention? I am a big supporter of amateur theater of any kind. To me, those are the people who are truly committed and are in it for the sake of 'the art', nothing else.
