Take to the high seas aboard Her Majesty’s Ship Pinafore in this traditional telling of Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved comic operetta full of mistaken identity, duty, intrigue and lots of laughs. Seaman Ralph Rackstraw is love-struck with a lass above his station—the Captain’s daughter, Josephine. What’s a fellow to do when his love is promised by her father to The Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph Porter, KBC, First Lord of the Admiralty who is followed everywhere by his sisters and his cousins and his aunts; how can a sailor of such a low station compete with that? Enter the mysterious Little Buttercup, a bumboat of a woman with a secret that turns everything upside down. Poking good-natured fun at patriotism, the Royal Navy, and the appointment of unqualified people to positions of authority, H.M.S. Pinafore is a classic, time-tested delight not to be missed.
