WATERVILLE — The Gilbert & Sullivan Players from New York will perform the Gilbert and Sullivan classic “H.M.S Pinafore” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6 at The Waterville Opera House, 93 Main St.

Romantic sailors, sisters, cousins and aunts will sing and dance their way across the deck of the fanciful British naval vessel with the improbable name. The very proper Captain Corcoran and ridiculously pompous Sir Joseph Porter preside, the villainous Dick Deadeye speaks the ugly truth, and Little Buttercup reveals the outrageous mistake that allows true love to overcome the problems of class distinction. Memorable signature tunes abound on board ship and the riotous “Bell Trio” sparks a celebration in Act II.

Tickets cost $36 for adults, and $15 for students.
