Regan De Wynter Productions in association with Hilary A. Williams are proud to present H.M.S. Pinafore or The Lass That Loved a Sailor By W.S. Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan.
With infectious tunes and a beautifully constructed libretto it deals with the age-old conundrum of love between social classes. Joyful, witty and fun for all the family!
