Even the Astronomer Royal will have to forgo exploring the mathematical curiosities raised in Gilbert and Sullivan's "Pirates of Penzance," at least until floodwaters in Minot recede.
The show, initially set to run Saturday through Wednesday as the second installment in the Minot State University Summer Theatre's 46th season, has been postponed, according to director Chad Gifford.
The theater itself is out of the water, but with mitigation and displacement and no definite end in sight the group felt it was better to hold off.

Current plans are to run the musical "Pirates of Penzance" July 7-11, the dates initially set for the non-musical entry "Don't Dress for Dinner."
Production dates for the musical "My Fair Lady" have shifted to July 21-25, and "Don't Dress for Dinner" is currently planned to be performed late in August and is envisioned as a benefit production for the theater.
