November 17 – december 13, 2015

Join Chicago theatre renegades The Hypocrites on the high seas—or, in this case, at a slumber party full of pajama-clad sailors—in their playful reimagining of the popular Gilbert and Sullivan classic. Joseph, the Captain’s son, falls for lowly sailor Ralphina Rackstraw…but duty demands that he marry the lofty Admiral Dame Jo-Ann instead! Replete with guitars, ukuleles, and reversed gender roles, this comic tale of love, intrigue, and social satire comes to life as you’ve never seen it before.
