A Hayes Theatre Co. Production
Set sail on the high seas with Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved comedy of star-crossed lovers, mismatched marriages and mistaken identities. Award winning director, Kate Gaul, makes her Hayes Theatre Co debut with this re-imagined, gender-bending, hyper-theatrical and kinky take on this Gilbert & Sullivan classic.
This nautical caper is overflowing with infectious tunes such as I am the Monarch of the Sea, I’m Called Little Buttercup and He is an Englishman. H.M.S. Pinafore is a sharp satire of the English social hierarchical system of the Victorian Age.
Pinafore’s extraordinary popularity in Britain, America and elsewhere was followed by the similar success of a series of Gilbert & Sullivan works, including The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado. Don’t miss out on this rollicking farce and get set for some hysterical hi-jinks on the high seas.
