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.

Very enjoyable show led by Bradley Greenwald's delightful turn as the decadent Emcee. The cast did an admirable job and the production fit in quite well with the Showboat surroundings. The only mar on the experience was the initial difficulty in finding the parking that was actually close to the venue. However, this was a solid production and I definitely recommend it!!!
Quotes & Highlights
Learn more about the Frank Theatre production.
Take your seat at the “Kit Kat Klub,” the perfectly marvelous cabaret where an aspiring American writer, Cliff Bradshaw, encounters British singer Sally Bowles. As they join in the pursuit of a life of pleasure in Weimar Berlin, the world outside the Klub begins to splinter as Hitler rises to power. The play is fueled by an overriding, infectious mood of fickle, live-for-the-moment, bitter-sweet desperation battling a society’s unwillingness to acknowledge what is right in front of them.
Cabaret is directed by Wendy Knox, with musical direction by Michael Croswell and Melissa Hart, and coreography by Bonnie Bottoms. It features a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Fred Ebb, and music by John Kander. The 1966 Broadway production was a hit, and spawned a 1972 film. The classic songs featured in the score are, among others, “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama,” “Tomorrow Belongs to Me,” and, of course, “Cabaret.”
The production will feature Bradley Greenwald as the Emcee and Melissa Hart (who performed Sally Bowles in Hal Prince’s original 1966 Broadway staging and was nominated for a Tony for her work in Georgy Girl) as Frau Schneider. The acting company also features Patrick Bailey (Herr Schultz), Sara Richardson (Sally Bowles) and Max Wojtanowicz (Cliff) along with an ensemble that includes Maria Asp, Joseph Botten, Joey Clark, Michael Davidovich, Tessa Flynn, Leif Jurgensen, Barbara Meyer, Peter Middlecamp, Jonathan Peterson, Jennifer Phillips, Kimberly Richardson, James Rodriguez, Anna Sundberg, Eve Tugwell, Breanna Weitzel and Joetta Wright.
