H.M.S. Pinafore, plus a selection of Gilbert and Sullivan favourites

Music and laughter in Gilbert and Sullivan’s first blockbuster!

Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company

Saturday 9 April 2016

Join us aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore for a concert version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s ever popular hit.

Captain Corcoran, the Captain of the H.M.S Pinafore, is delighted that his daughter, Josephine, is sought in marriage by Sir Joseph Porter KCB, Britain’s First Lord of the Admiralty (who has never actually been to sea).

However, with Sir Joseph’s arrival aboard the H.M.S Pinafore imminent, Captain Corcoran is horrified to discover that Josephine is in love with Ralph Rackstraw, a common sailor.

Will Josephine do her duty and obey her father’s wishes? Or will love level the social divide between her and Ralph? And what is Little Buttercup’s secret?

If that wasn’t enough, in the first act we will be performing a selection of some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s other fantastic music, for what will be a very enjoyable evening’s entertainment!
