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 Malcolm Rivers, Colin Lee, Richard Suart, Royce Mills, Gareth Jones, Jacqueline Varsey, Maria Jones, Sophie-Louise Dann, Deborah Hawksley, Bethany Halliday, Anthea Kempston, Davina Adshead, Ruth Brown, Rachel Taylor, Rachel Munro, Sandra Nakhosteen, Louise van de Bours, Bridget Hardy, Vivien Care, Shelley Coulter-Smith, James Llwewllyn Thomas, Stephen Brown, Julian Alexander Smith, David Heathcote, Steven Fawell, Dean MacRae, Dominic Barrand, Nathaniel Gibbs, Robert M Davies, David Valks, Stephen Faughey, Brian J Saccente, John Suckling, Andrew Wareham.
