The GLBT Arts Consortium and the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) will present Gilbert & Sullivan?s Pinafore for six performances over two weekends in July and August. The performances are: July 28-30, and August 4-6, 7:00 PM. All performances are at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, 545 7th Street SE, corner of G and 7th St. SE. Tickets are $20 and are available by calling 202-547-6839, or click on www.chaw.org. The production is funded in part by the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.

This loving adaptation of Gilbert and Sullivan?s Pinafore is under the musical direction of C. Paul Heins (Lesbian & Gay Chorus of Washington, DC). Jill Strachan is providing stage direction and choreography is by Alvin Mayes (both also of the Lesbian & Gay Chorus of Washington, DC. Mr. Mayes teaches at the University of Maryland.) Cast members hail from Bread & Roses Feminist Singers, D.C.?s Different Drummers, Lesbian & Gay Chorus of Washington, and the community-at-large.

This rendition of Pinafore in an ensemble format has several unique updates starting with the scene set in Washington, D.C. Savoyards will still expect to enjoy the highlights of Pinafore, including ?When I was a Lad? and ?I?m Called Little Buttercup.?

The GLBT Arts Consortium is a network of more than 15 glbt arts organizations and artists in the Washington, D.C. area that seeks to increase the visibility of glbt arts. CHAW is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that offers numerous ways and opportunities to get involved in the arts through classes, workshops, performance, music, art and private music instruction. This is the fourth collaboration between the Consortium and CHAW.
