Following 45 years of vibrant productions at the King's Theatre, including our 2017 5* production of Ruddygore, EDGAS returns with one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most popular comic operas, H.M.S. Pinafore.
H.M.S. Pinafore is the comical tale of a love affair between sailor Ralph Rackstraw and his captain’s daughter, Josephine. Unfortunately Josephine’s father, Captain Corcoran, has loftier ambitions for his daughter and plans to marry her off to the insufferable but wealthy Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord of the Admiralty. When the captain discovers that the lovers are planning to elope, his attempts to thwart their plans lead to a shocking turning of the tables.
With famously jolly numbers including “We Sail the Ocean Blue”, “I’m Called Little Buttercup” and “He is an Englishman”, this fast-paced maritime caper is a treat for all the family.
Notes: THIS PRODUCTION IS PRESENTED BY ONE OF THE BEST AMATEUR COMPANIES IN THE CAPITAL WORKING TO PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS
