H.M.S. Pinafore

Date: 18 Jan 2019

Aboard Her Majesty’s Ship Pinafore, the captain’s daughter, Josephine, has fallen in love with a lowly sailor, Ralph Rackstraw, despite her father’s plan to marry her to the First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter.

As the lovers lament their predicament and plan their escape, a surprise disclosure from an unlikely quarter shows that not all is at it seems.

Featuring the songs I am the Monarch of the Sea, I’m Called Little Buttercup and He is an Englishman, Gilbert & Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore is a sharp satire of the English social hierarchical system of the Victorian Age.

Director Kate Gaul’s acclaimed Hayes Theatre Co production hits the road for a short NSW tour. Katherine Allen, Gavin Brown, Thomas Campbell, Jermaine Chau, Tobias Cole, Sean Hall, Bobbie Jean Henning, Dominic Lui, Rory O’Keefe, Billie Palin and Zach Selmes feature.
