Sasha Regan’s award-winning Gilbert & Sullivan Company returns to London and Winchester this Spring.
Sasha Regan’s award-winning all-male Gilbert & Sullivan Company sails into Wilton’s Music Hall for one month, from 16th March – 9th April, before the crew embarks on another nautical adventure to the Theatre Royal Winchester for one week, 21st April – 27th April 2022.
Following their smash-hit run of The Pirates of Penzance in the West End, the all-male crew invites landlubbers below deck for a bold re-imagining of W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan’s fourth collaboration and first international blockbuster: H.M.S. Pinafore or The Lass That Loved a Sailor.
With infectious tunes and a beautifully constructed libretto, H.M.S. Pinafore is a charming comic operetta dealing with the age-old conundrum of love between social classes.
Sasha Regan’s inventive production is set on board a World War II battleship where troops create a distraction from the goings-on above board. The Captain’s daughter, Josephine, falls for lower class sailor Ralph Rackstraw but her father wishes for her to marry the upstanding Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord of the Admiralty. Will Josephine follow her heart’s desire or will she honour her father’s wish? Find out in March!
Expect plenty of mischief, mistaken identities and surprises on the high seas from a diverse crew of handsome Popeyes and their gorgeous lasses.
