Leo Roving: In the Footlights

Leo, Roving Reporter

Report from: BMEC

Story filed:  In the Footlights

Hi people. It’s Leo here. This week is show week for the Pirates of Penzance musical that I am in. Fun fact: so many fictional pirate characters speak with a Cornish accent because during the Golden Age of Piracy, in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, many English pirates came from this region like Bristol, Devon, and Cornwall. Penzance is in Cornwall near the towns of Mousehole, Boscean, Porthcurno, Zenor, Relubbus, Raginnis, Mulfra, Crowles and Lands End to name a few. One of my favourite all time movies is Band of Pirates but I am not sure if any of these pirates are from Cornwall. Anyway, come and see the show this week at BMEC – it’s a comedy!

Until next time
