Photos: First Look at The Hypocrites' H.M.S. PINAFORE, Now Playing

On the heels of their critically acclaimed hit ALL OUR TRAGIC, The Hypocrites are pleased to continue their 2014-15 Season with another world premiere: a playful re-imaging of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera H.M.S. PINAFORE, adapted and directed by Founding Artistic Director Sean Graney, co-directed by Thrisa Hodits with new arrangements by Matt Kahler* and Andra Velis Simon. In what has become an annual celebration of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon, H.M.S. PINAFORE will run in repertory with remounts of the company's wildly popular productions of THE MIKADO and THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE, also adapted and directed by Graney. All three promenade-style productions will be helmed by ten creatively cast performers acting as their own orchestra, with music direction by Andra Velis Simon.

The Hypocrites' repertory of three Gilbert and Sullivan favorites, the perfect non-denominational holiday offering, will play November 26, 2014 - February 7, 2015 at their new home, The Den Theatre, 1329-1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Chicago. Ticket for all three productions are currently on sale at www.the-hypocrites.com. The press opening for H.M.S. PINAFORE is Monday, December 1 at 8 pm.

The ten-member ensemble cast of H.M.S. PINAFORE, THE MIKADO and PIRATES OF PENZANCE includes: Kate Carson-Groner, Emily Casey, Matt Kahler*, Robert McLean*, Dana Omar, Shawn Pfautsch, Doug Pawlik, Erik Schroeder, Christine Stulik* and Lauren Vogel.

The production team includes: Michael Smallwood (scenic design), Alison Siple (costume design), Heather Gilbert (lighting design), Maria DeFabo (props design) and Miranda Anderson (stage manager).
