CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.


The Mikado archivePerhaps 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.
