Lent Week 3
HMS Pinafore tells the story of Captain Corcoran and his crew aboard their saucy ship the Pinafore!
Ralph Rackstraw, a humble foremast lad, is in love with the Captain's daughter, Josephine. To make matters worse for the lovers, she has caught the eye of the Lord of the Admiralty himself, Sir Joseph Porter, and now faces the decision whether to marry for love or for reason. Add into the mix the crafty old sailor Dick Deadeye, the mysterious bumboat women Little Buttercup, Sir Joseph's loyal contingent of sisters, cousins and aunts and a crew of hornpiping sailors, and Captain Corcoran has his hands full keeping order on deck! Featuring the songs 'I'm called little Buttercup', 'I am the Captain of the Pinafore' and the soaring 'He is an Englishman' (not to mention some of the wittiest dialogue found between songs!), HMS Pinafore is one of the most-loved and enduring musical shows of all time.
