Anchors aweigh for this splash hit musical!

Her Majesty's Ship Pinafore is setting sail for the splash hit event of the summer! Gilbert and Sullivan's first blockbuster is among the most crowd-pleasing comic musicals in history, loved for its dynamite songs, gleefully entertaining story and saucy satire. The captain's daughter is in love with an ordinary sailor but her father has a more sophisticated suitor in mind. Will she and her beloved defy convention and set sail for love? Filled with Sullivan's memorable melodies – infused with fresh musical arrangements ranging from big band swing to classic pop – H.M.S. Pinafore is pure joy and sensational entertainment for everyone, young or old!
