Gilbert & Sullivan's crowd-pleasing romantic comedy sets sail this summer! Ralph Rackstraw, "the smartest lad in all the fleet," is in love with the Captain's daughter, Josephine, but her father has a more sophisticated suitor in mind. Will true love prevail?

Gilbert & Sullivan’s first big hit, Pinafore is full of hijinks and silliness, as well as the duo's trademark wit, satire, and tunefulness.

"The lasting appeal of Pinafore is Gilbert’s unmatched linguistic genius and Sullivan's generous supply of addictive melodies." – NY Times
