  H.M.S. Pinafore at Olney Theatre Center

H.M.S. Pinafore

Olney Theatre Center
2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd. Olney

They're back! Chicago's most innovative theatre company, The Hypocrites, return to introduce Olney audiences to their critically-acclaimed, immersive and family friendly version of Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore. Just like in Pirates we're on the high seas-or, in this case, at a slumber party full of pajama-clad sailors-in a playful reimagining of the popular Gilbert and Sullivan classic. Joseph, the Captain's son, falls for lowly sailor Ralphina Rackstraw...but duty demands that he marry the lofty Admiral Dame Jo-Ann instead! Replete with guitars, ukuleles, and reversed gender roles, this comic tale of love, intrigue, and social satire comes to life as you've never seen it before.

Talkin Broadway - Highly Recommended

"...This staging, by the visiting companies The Hypocrites and the House Theatre of Chicago, turns the intimate black box into a truly immersive and interactive space. While some assigned seats are available, audience members are invited to jump into a large round tub filled with pillows, sit on top of an onstage bed, or climb a slide to become part of the action (scenic design by Tom Burch)."

DC Metro Theater Arts - Recommended

"...This H.M.S. Pinafore is a unique and unforgettable experience, with or without the "Pirate Punch." In a world where we are inundated with constant stimuli, it is difficult to encounter something so truly novel. Kids and adults alike will enjoy this celebratory romp through this masterpiece of an operetta, produced in a widely accessible format which presents the audience with a plethora of sensory delights."
