PSU Opera Theatre presents Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S Pinafore

Posted on behalf of Pittsburg State University

PSU Opera Theatre will take audiences to the open seas on Feb. 3 and Feb. 5 when they present Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic operetta “H.M.S Pinafore” at the Bicknell Family Center for the Arts.  

This show is filled with classic tunes and rollicking laughs: Josephine, the Captain’s daughter, is in love with able seaman Ralph Rackstraw. But her father has other plans for her: an advantageous union with the exalted Sir Joseph Porter, K.C.B.  

The performance, featuring the live music of the SEK Symphony, will begin at 7 p.m. on Feb. 3 and again at 3 p.m. on Feb. 5 in the Linda and Lee Scott Performance Hall. 

Tickets are free to PSU students, faculty, and staff with a PSU ID. They are $10 for the general public and $5 for seniors and for students under 18. They may be picked up or purchased at the PSU Ticket Office in Room 107 of the Garfield Weede Building, or may be purchased at the door starting 30 minutes before the show. 

The operetta is under the direction of Instructional Professor of Music Patrick Howle and the symphony is directed by Associate Professor Raul Munguia.
