FLINT — The Kearsley Park Players’ summer season continues with the Gilbert & Sullivan musical romp “H.M.S. Pinafore” to be presented at the historic Kearsley Park Pavilion for one weekend only, Aug. 25-28.
When it first opened in London in 1878 “H.M.S. Pinafore” was an immediate triumph and became Gilbert & Sullivan’s first international sensation with numerous productions on both sides of the Atlantic. The story takes place aboard the Royal British Navy warship HMS Pinafore and is filled with music, mirth and silliness.
This is the third Gilbert & Sullivan show to be produced by the Kearsley Park Players in as many years and their previous productions — “Pirates of Penzance” and “The Mikado” — drew sellout crowds and rave reviews.
Performances are for one weekend only and include: Aug. 25-27 at 7:30 p.m. and a matinee, Aug. 28 at 3 p.m.
The production is led by Director Kay Kelly, Musical Director Nada Radakovich and Choreographer James Cech. Among the large cast are noted area singers including David Lindsay as Captain Corcoran, Emily Carter as Josephine, Aaron McCoy Jacob as Ralph Rackstraw and Tim Ruwart as Sir Joseph Porter.
Tickets are only $10 and will be available at the door. For information call 810-845-4050 or go to www.kearsleyparkplayers.com. — G.G.
