All Aboard for an Unforgettable Night:

HMS Pinafore by Gilbert and Sullivan!
Proudly presented in concert by Blenheim Choral and the Marlborough Civic Orchestra.

Get ready to set sail on a sea of laughter and melody with our upcoming performances of HMS Pinafore, the timeless comic opera by the legendary duo Gilbert and Sullivan. This is an event you won’t want to miss! Experience the sharp, satirical humour that only Gilbert and Sullivan can deliver. You will be guided on your voyage with a witty narration as you get to know the various characters of the ship and the amusing situations in which they find themselves. Revel in the delightful and memorable score that has charmed audiences for over a century. From “I’m Called Little Buttercup” to “He Is an Englishman,” every song is a gem.

Our talented cast of locals alongside special guests Joanna Foote and Chris McRae, bring these quirky characters to life with energy and enthusiasm, ensuring a performance that is both captivating and heartwarming.

The story takes place aboard the Royal Navy ship HMS Pinafore. The captain's daughter, Josephine, is in love with a lower-class sailor, Ralph Rackstraw, although her father intends her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, the First Lord of the Admiralty. She abides by her father's wishes at first, but Sir Joseph's advocacy of the equality of humankind encourages Ralph and Josephine to overturn conventional social order. They declare their love for each other and eventually plan to elope. The Captain discovers this plan, but, as in many of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, a surprise disclosure changes things dramatically near the end of the story.

This production is perfect for audiences of all ages. Bring your family and friends and enjoy a night of wholesome entertainment together. Don’t Miss Out! Tickets are selling fast, so make sure to secure your seats today. Whether you’re a long-time fan of Gilbert and Sullivan or new to their work, HMS Pinafore promises a delightful evening filled with humour, music, and unforgettable performances.

Join us for a night of maritime merriment and melodic mischief. We can’t wait to see you there!
