A delighted audience saw Gilbert & Sullivan’s “HMS Pinafore” in a totally different light on Monday night when an all male cast of sixteen played both male and female parts of this popular operetta. This was director, Sasha Regan’s interpretation of the original show which turned around the crew of a World War II battleship as they transform themselves from present-day sailors to the motley crew of HMS Pinafore and the love of a lowly ranked matelot for the daughter of the ship’s captain takes its many turns. After the show the company were given a warm welcome in the Theatre bar and wished well for the rest of their tour which cames to an end in May.
