Gilbert & Sullivan get bitten by the jitterbug in this swinging, 1940's-style update of The Mikado. Faithful to the original in song and story, Hot Mikado sets everything in a jazz club, where a young rocker is on the run from his overeager fiancée and searching for the woman who stole his heart. A sensationally snappy adaptation of a classic operetta, the adaptation includes musical styles ranging from jazz to swing to gospel to blues -- including a show-stopping homage to the Andrews Sisters. Nina LeNoir directs this wild and entertaining production at Chapman University's Waltmar Theatre. Learn More

All dancers are committed and good, several are exceptional. If they want to have professional careers, and their personalities and emotions are right for the intense competition, they can. Whenever a dancer moved slightly outside the traditional ballet box, their unique creativity and courage showed brilliantly. Among the stand-out performances were David Preciado (the youngest boy), Shiori Midorikawa, Sam Zaldivar (like a leaf blowing in the breeze), Miori Fukada, Patrick Frenette, Jorge Richard Laguanas, Jessica Yerkes, Marshal Whitely, and of course the brilliant Clifton Brown (professional). Excellent training and great heart.

I enjoyed this very much and would definitely go again - I took my 11 year old Little Sister and she loved it too. We both thought it was a little too long but I can imagine how hard it is to give everyone their moment! Excellent dancing,...continued
