One of Gilbert and Sullivan's most successful operas, The Hypocrites' reimagined Mikado returns to the stage. Set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu, in which flirting has been made a capital offense, The Mikado tells the story of a wandering minstrel who falls for a betrothed woman. An intelligent satire, the Japanese setting allowed Gilbert and Sullivan to slyly mask their commentary on contemporary British society. Directed by The Hypocrites' founding artistic director Sean Graney, the hit production features a cast of twelve actors who also make up the orchestra. This classic and surprisingly modern tale of star-crossed lovers features the tunes "Three Little Maids From School Are We" and "A Wand'ring Minstrel I." Learn More

This is an incredible show no one should miss. Clever, funny, poignant, did I mention clever? The acting was superb by all members and the story was both entertaining and witty. The right balance of camp and drama. I highly recommend this production.
Written by Emily Schwartz
Directed by Jimmy McDermott
Chased across the sea by destiny and Marconi's wireless telegraph, this factual (and fanciful) turn of the century tragedy explores the bizarre story of this homicidal homeopath by having three different actors (Scott Cupper, Matt Holzfeind, & Stuart Ritter) portray the part of our dear, diabolical Doctor.
The Strange Tree Group returns to its grand guignol roots with this marvelously macabre tale about love, death, daring escapes and a bathtub full of body parts.
