    Aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore, Ralph Rackstraw and Josephine are madly in love, though neither dares declare it, divided by the barriers of class. But when Josephine’s father Captain Corcoran attempts to arrange a match for her with Sir Joseph Porter, the lovers are galvanised into action! Aided and abetted by Ralph’s fellow sailors and Sir Joseph’s tender-hearted sisters, cousins and aunts, the pair plan to sneak ashore and elope... Will Josephine finally be with the one she loves, or will the prejudices of class separate them for ever?

    One of the highlights of the Cambridge theatre calendar, the Minack show brings together some of Cambridge’s finest technicians, musicians and performers. The production is put together on site as the cast, crew, and orchestra live and work together in the idyllic village of Paul in Cornwall (a short drive from the theatre). The cast will arrive in early September to begin rehearsals, with the orchestra and technicians following a week later.
