While we hope that our 2021 productions will take place as planned, the uncertainty surrounding  the COVID-19 pandemic means we may have to change our schedule.

Gilbert and Sullivan scored their first international hit with H.M.S. Pinafore in 1878, satirising the rise of unqualified people to positions of authority and poking good-natured fun at the Royal Navy and the English obsession with social status. As with many of their operettas, a surprise twist changes everything dramatically near the end of the story.Overview of show - always use Verdana size 16 here and in tables
