A GILBERT and Sullivan favourite will be performed by The Grantham Singers tonight (Friday) and tomorrow.

The cast of amateur performers has taken on HMS Pinafore, and will present the show at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham.

The story follows humble sailor Ralph who is head over heels in love with his captain’s daughter Josephine.

However, marriage is on the horizon for Josephine and Sir Joseph Porter, the first Lord of the Admiralty, so the course of true love could be on the rocks.

Add in a few cases of mistaken identity, skulduggery and romance, and the stage is set for an evening of fun which promises to be a blast for the audience.

HMS Pinafore includes some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous songs, including ‘When I was a Lad’ and ‘Never Mind the Why and Wherefore’.

The show is on at the Guildhall tonight and tomorrow, at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £8. To buy, pop into the Guildhall box office in St Peter’s Hill, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guildhallartscentre.com
