Director and theater-design professor Darrin Pufall and the theater and music students at Boise State take on Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Pirates of Penzance” — with a twist. Several cast members will be made of fabric, glue and imagination. Pufall streamlined the operetta for the smaller Danny Peterson Theatre by inserting a few cheeky puppets, constructed by student Stella Tag, into the mix. “It adds to the already campy nature of the show,” he says.
