An hilarious story of true love on the high seas bursting with fabulous songs in the best Gilbert and Sullivan tradition. Captain Corcoran, the commander of the HMS Pinafore wants to raise his position in the world by marrying his daughter Josephine to Admiral Sir Joseph Porter. But, the lovely Josephine's heart belongs to a humble sailor, Ralph Rackstraw and despite a grotesque looking spoilsport Dick Dead Eye, the secret to a happy ending rests with Little Buttercup.
