The American Repertory Theater and Oberon present the Hypocrites' production of Sean Graney's adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore starting tonight. The production is directed by Graney and Thrisa Hodits. Performances run through March 20.

The Hypocrites have infused W.S. Gilbert's comical libretto with their own brand of clownishness and brought a folk/pop interpretation to Arthur Sullivan's melodies in one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most beloved works.

The ensemble cast includes Kate Carson-Groner, Emily Casey, Matt Kahler, Erin O'Shea, Dana Omar, Shawn Pfautsch, Doug Pawlik, Erik Schroeder, and Christine Stulik.

Arrangements are by Matt Kahler and Andra Velis Simon, choreography is by Erin Kilmurray, and music direction is by Andra Velis Simon. The production team includes Tom Burch and Michael Smallwood (scenic design), Alison Siple (costume design), Heather Gilbert (lighting design), Kevin O'Donnell (sound designer), Miranda Anderson (stage management), and Maria DeFabo (props design).
