UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.

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.
