All Hands on Deck!

s2016 Pinafore Poster
Designed by Elizabeth Pattyn

The cast and crew of H.M.S Pinafore are getting well into the swing of rehearsals and design meetings as we steer the show further into the semester. Star painter and artist Elizabeth Pattyn (MassArt) crafted a stunning poster for us that will soon be catching the eyes of everyone around campus. Our directors are hard at work teaching music and developing characters with our exceptionally talented cast, while designers are cementing their creative visions for the show. At production meeting this past Friday, G&S alumni and seasoned set designer Evan Schueckler ’15 unveiled another terrific design that will surely wow audiences as the curtains open each night. His work on The Gondoliers in autumn 2014 was a masterpiece in perspective and design for the tricky Agassiz stage. We think he’s done it again with Pinafore and can’t wait for you to join us aboard the HMS in just five and a half weeks!

We would also like to announce the launch of our official Diamond Jubilee page! Check it out for details of special events and more information about the big weekend of celebration!


Setting Sail with H.M.S. Pinafore

Written by Trevor Mullin

As we depart from our 1920s style Ruddigore, gears are in motion here at HRG&SP in preparation for H.M.S. Pinafore and our 60th anniversary this spring! As we welcome Peryn E. A. Reeves-Darby and Michaela J. Kane on Board, we are very excited for what next semester brings. With experience as both an actor and our most recent stage manager, Peryn has continually been a valuable member of our community. Likewise, Michaela’s previous technical experience and dedication to the organization provides a rewarding addition to our Board. We look forward to working with them more in the future!

As Pinafore is quickly approaching, we have also selected our director and music director for the upcoming semester. With the directorial prowess of Olivia Munk and musical expertise of Jacob Moscona-Skolnik, everyone is in for a high quality theatrical experience! 

With our highly-talented designers and technicians, we are very excited to once again transform the Agassiz stage into a nautical wonder! We hope everyone else is stoked for this upcoming project and keep an eye out for additional updates in the coming months! 

Again, if any alums are interested in being involved in Pinafore for our 60th anniversary, please reach out to the producers at We would love to hear from you!
