The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Austin presents its summer 2014 grand production of H.M.S. Pinafore; or, The Lass That Loved a Sailor. Nine performances will be presented at the Worley Barton Theater at Brentwood Christian School, June 12-22, 2014. This immensely popular classic was W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan’s fourth comic opera of their fourteen, and was their first international sensation. Gilbert’s plot is full of his hallmark topsy-turvy humor and memorable lyrics and Sullivan’s music displays his inexhaustible gift of melody, with bright and cheerful tunes that leave audiences humming.
Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail, Jr., returns for his 14th summer with the Society, along with Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, enjoying his 18th season as Music Director. Bill Hatcher returns as Production Manager.
