HMS Pinafore: The Next Generation 2013

The Stanford Savoyards experienced record-breaking crowds for their 2012 Winter production of HMS Pinafore: The Next Generation. This sy*nerd*gistic mindmelding of cult Victorian and Star Trek Federation realms featured a no holds barred, warp speed rendition of HMS Pinafore with many of the revered characters, costuming, and settings of the Star Trek: The Next Generation opus.

HMS Pinafore: The Next Generation was directed by Ravi Soundararajan and Jan Heiman, long-time Savoyards veterans, and conducted by Madeleine Graham, making her debut with a 24-member pit orchestra of local Bay Area musicians.
