Wilson Center: H.M.S. Pinafore
May 6 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
n H.M.S. Pinafore, lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw has a problem. Or rather, two. He’s fallen for the Captain’s daughter, Josephine, and to make matters worse, she’s been promised to the haughty Sir Joseph Porter. And although Josephine’s heart beats only for Ralph, she agrees to be a dutiful daughter and accept her role as Sir Joseph’s wife. Normally Sir Joseph would boast his appreciation of equality among men, but when Ralph and Josephine eventually try to elope, he flip flops his position. Speaking of flipping and flopping… Little Buttercup, the bumbling former “baby farmer” admits her mistake from many years before – that Ralph was really born to the Captain’s parents and vice versa. In the end, much rejoicing begins, as everyone finally finds true love. Even Little Buttercup!
