A co-production of KU School of Music and University Theatre
A comic clash that tugs at your heartstrings, the H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass That Loved a Sailor as it is also called, takes us on deck where secrets are stowed away, chief among them Little Buttercup's baby-farming past. A young and lovely Josephine appears doomed to marry someone whom she does not love, Sir Joseph, the epitome of unmerited rank, as she struggles with a secret yearning that ultimately puts her lover's life at risk. Can she convince her controlling father Captain Corcoran? Love hits the deck, but Buttercup's secret eases matrimonial woes in this satire of the British class system and masterpiece of musical theatre by Gilbert and Sullivan. Featuring the KU Symphony Orchestra.
