High school students conquer aboard 'Pinafore'
The title "opera" can be intimidating, even when paired with the adjective "comic."
But Red Wing High School students cast in the comic opera "H.M.S. Pinafore" showed no fear, no weakness Thursday night when they performed a show that is part of musical theater history.
"Pinafore" opened to a small but appreciative crowd -- another group not intimidated by Gilbert & Sullivan. The production will be staged again at 7 today and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Sheldon Theatre.
