This is the Vortex Theater Company’s 2007 Drama Desk Nominated* H.M.S. PINAFORE, also directed by the gentle theater giant, Dave Dalton. In Dalton’s new adaptation, I played The Girl, who gleefully reads aloud from THE PINAFORE PICTURE BOOK (a children’s book version of the operetta written by W. S. Gilbert). While the girl reads her favorite book to the audience, the story comes alive, music and all, as she and the audience get whisked away into a puppet show scale version of this delightful operetta about British officers at sea. This show was a dream come true for both the want-to-be musical theater proficient and kid in me. I got to sing, dance and play with toys on stage the whole time! (Photo Credit: Joshua Randall)
