Take to the high seas aboard the H.M.S. Pinafore, Gilbert & Sullivan's beloved comic operetta of mistaken identity, love, intrigue and duty in the British navy. This seaworthy satire spins the yarn of a gentlemanly captain who's arranged for his daughter to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty ... even though she's already in love with a common sailor on her father's ship. The show's signature hummable tunes include "I'm Called Little Buttercup," "When I Was a Lad" and "I Am the Captain of the Pinafore." Set against the looming backdrop of World War II, don't miss this dramatically reimagined production when it sails into the Howard Conn Fine Arts Center.

“Savvy, droll and deliciously caustic” —Variety
Using Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece A Doll’s House as a springboard, award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman has crafted a bold and insightful adaptation that transports Ibsen’s classic into 21st century suburbia. With a happily-ever-after ending that is as audacious today as Ibsen’s original was over a century ago, Gilman’s _Dollhouse _raises questions about women and financial independence, marriage and motherhood, and how keeping up with the Joneses may be setting us behind.
