Details

Perhaps Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular and most performed operetta, this Japanese inspired story has some of the most memorable of their songs including; 'Three Little Maids from School', 'I've got a Little List', 'A Wandering Minstrel' and 'A Most Humane Mikado'. Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado, arrives in disguise in the town of Titipu to escape his betrothal to the rather aged Katisha. Here, he falls in love with Yum-Yum, the reluctant fiancee of Ko-Ko the executioner (who doesn't execute people). Meanwhile, the Mikado comes to visit Pooh-Bah, the spiv of a town mayor, seeking some public executions and Katisha arrives seeking her betrothed ... plans are uregently required to make everyone happy and nobody headless.

Performers Alistair McGowan, David Curry (Nanki-Poo), Bruce Graham (Poo-Bah), Rebecca Bottone (Yum Yum), Sophie-Louise Dann (Pitti-Sing), Simon Butteriss (Ko-Ko), Gareth Jones (Pish-Tush), Jill Pert (Katisha), Anna Lowe (Peep-Bo).
