Adapted from Gilbert and Sullivan for younger performers by Lynne Bartlett, David Billings, Mark Leehy and Kevin O'Mara.
Cast: 5m., 3w., plus chorus as desired. Able seaman Ralph Rackstraw is love struck with a lass above his station—the captain's daughter. But the captain of the Pinafore has promised his daughter's hand to The Rt. Hon. Sir Joseph Porter, KBC (First Lord of the Admiralty—followed everywhere by his sisters and his cousins and his aunts). A common person can hardly expect to compete with a high-born person … but are Ralph and the captain really from different classes? Poor Little Buttercup, the bumboat lady, has a secret … Who will end up with whom? Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
