HMS Pinafore is one of the very popular Gilbert and Sullivan musicals. It is considered as one of the “Big Three”, the other two being “The Pirates of Penzance”(2007) and “The Mikado”(2015) both of which have previously been presented by BMSI, as well as the very successful “Gondoliers”(2012).

Casting for Pinafore is complete and we have a strong team with a large ensemble. However, we find ourselves in the unusual situation of having many more men than women for the ensemble. This almost unheard of in community theatre. We really would like to balance it out, so we are still looking for women (with a stage age of 15 to 115)  who would like to join the cast.

HMS Pinafore contains many opportunities for teenagers and adults of all ages. If you’ve ever thought about being involved in a show but haven’t had the confidence, take the plunge. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done this before. It’s an opportunity to make new friends, discover hidden talents, and have a fantastic time.  Rehearsals start soon.
