By W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
Directed by Dale Hirlehey
Written just after The Mikado, this comic operetta from Gilbert and Sullivan brings more spectres and spooky, musical fun to wrap up our 20th season. As only they can, Gilbert and Sullivan parody melodrama while at the same time employing some of its classic elements – a poor and virtuous heroine, a villain who steals her away, heros and faithful friends. And we mustn’t forget the ghosts who live in the family portraits. Hidden identities, courtship gone awry and a good old fashioned family curse showcase such songs as “In sailing o’er life’s ocean wide”, “When I’m a bad Bart, I will tell taradiddles” and “When a man has been a naughty baronet”. So don’t risk being moody and sad, make sure you have your tickets to Morpheus Theatre’s 20th season Gilbert and Sullivan operetta.
