Are you an Englishman?

Possibly the most famous of Gilbert and Sullivan's collaborations, “H.M.S. Pinafore” takes place over the course of one day on the ship for which the opera is named. Sir Joseph Porter, ruler of the navy, has come for the Captain's annual inspection, with intentions of asking for the Captain's daughter Josephine's hand in marriage. But what will happen when Sir Joseph brings his sisters, cousins, and aunts along and Josephine tries to sneak away to marry a sailor? This satirical Victorian piece combines witty social commentary with catchy melodies and a happy ending for all and is bound to be fun for the whole family.


Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 for the Rice community. All performances are at 8:30 p.m. The doors will open at approximately 7:45 each evening. Seating is open, and all remaining seats will be released 5 minutes before the start of the performance.
