Ouachita Baptist University's Division of Music and Department of Theatre Arts will present the comic opera “H.M.S. Pinafore” by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan from Thursday-Sunday, Nov. 4-7, in Jones Performing Arts Center. Performances will take place Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee at 2:30 p.m.

The production takes place in the 1920s aboard the Royal Navy ship H.M.S. Pinafore, anchored off of England’s south coast at Portsmouth. It tells the story of what happens when a captain's daughter is in love with a lower-class sailor, even though her father intends her to marry a lord.

“I think audiences will be pleasantly surprised by how accessible and funny the production is,” said Director Stephanie Murry, assistant professor of theatre arts at Ouachita. “I am looking forward to their reactions after seeing the performance.”
