A saucy ship...sublime singing...lusty laughter...don't miss Blue Hill Troupe's seaworthy eighty-seventh season!
For the benefit of The Carter Burden Center for the Aging
Or The Lass that Loved a Sailor
We sail the ocean blue...And our saucy ship's a beauty! But so is the captain's daughter, Josephine. When she reveals her hidden passion for Ralph Rackstraw, a handsome but lowly sailor, she threatens to capsize her father's well-laid plans for her marriage to Sir Joseph Porter of the Admiralty. Will the rank-crossed couple elope? Who is the elusive Little Buttercup and what does she know? Are all those women who travel with Sir Joseph really his sisters, cousins and aunts?! With its spirited shanties and aching ballads, deft satire of class distinctions, thwarted romances and mistaken identity, this mainstay of the Savoy opera canon receives a glorious full production from New York's longest running producers of Gilbert & Sullivan!
