Lamplighters Music Theatre is pleased to present our 2019-2020 Performance of…

HMS Pinafore


W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan

Known as one of the “Big Three” of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon, Pinafore was Gilbert and Sullivan’s first international sensation. Full of wonderful songs, drama and comedy, social conflict, and some of the male chorus music in the canon! With new men’s costumes to complete Judy Jackson’s vision of the show, this production of Pinafore is sure to be a delight!
