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.

GREAT show!!! Good energy, good acting, GREAT voices. Not too long, not too short. I've been to the Surf Ball Room in Clear Lake, IA many times so this story is near and dear to my heart although I was only 2 when Buddy Holly died.

Part biography, part rock ‘n’ roll concert, this is the musical retelling of the life and times of Buddy Holly from his meteoric rise to stardom to the unforgettable concert in Clear Lake, Iowa. Extremely talented, passionate, and impulsive, Buddy crossed racial barriers with his music and left an indelible legacy in just four short years.
