By The Staff

Welcome aboard a U.S. Navy Cargo Ship the USS Reluctant, which is operating in the back waters of the Pacific in the spring of 1945. This is not a very happy ship.
The sailors aboard are suffering from the deadly boredom that comes from the routine delivery of cargo during wartime. To make things worse, the ship’s captain is a cantankerous, small-minded man who refuses to allow the men liberty. The only ones making life on the ship tolerable are “Mister” Roberts, Doc and the feisty woman-chasing Ensign Pulver.
Mister Roberts shares the crew’s dislike for the captain, which is one reason for his popularity. Roberts joined the Navy to fight and hates being inactive almost as much as he hates the captain. He’s eager to get into the war before it ends. He is repeatedly writing requests for transfer off the “Reluctant” to a combat ship. This infuriates the captain, who is struggling to get a promotion to commander.
Brad Lounsbury, director of “Mister Roberts,” shares his vision for the production.
