H.M.S. Pinafore website
Following a sell-out run of The Pirates of Penzance in February 2016, Glitter & Twisted Theatre Company return to the Playhouse with another Gilbert & Sullivan musical, H.M.S. Pinafore.
Josephine, a middle-class captain’s daughter, is in love with a horny-handed sailor on her father’s own ship, but Daddy wants her to marry his own boss, the First Lord of the Admiralty. Of course love will find a way – these stories always end happily – but not after a few tears, more than a few belly-laughs, and some glorious musical numbers.
Glitter & Twisted’s superb cast wake up a Victorian classic and make it relevant to today’s audience. Hold onto your sailor hats – this is glittering G&S – but with a twist!
