Known as one of the "Big Three" of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon, PINAFORE was G&S's first international sensation. It's full of unforgettable songs, drama and comedy, social conflict, and some of the best male chorus music in the canon! With new men's costumes to complete a historically accurate vision of the show, creative and realistic staging, plus exquisite singing and full orchestra, this production of PINAFORE is sure to delight!
The captain of the Pinafore, in Gilbert & Sullivan’s 1878 seafaring musical satire, “is very, very good” and “commands a right good crew,” and the same could be said of director Ellen Brooks. “Pinafore,” G&S’s first big international hit, is part of the repertoire of Lamplighters, the now-almost-septuagenarian local company. The show moves from venue to venue (see the company’s website for details) with Baker Peeples directing a full orchestra.
