One of the best performed, best staged, most enjoyable performances I have attended in a long time. Outstanding in every sense.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this production. The music, voices, costuming, stage set, and most importantly the acting and comedy aspects of the show were wonderful. It's great to have humorous current political commentary woven into this...continued

Description

Three little maids from school, a wandering minstrel, a pompous government official, and the Lord High Executioner… just some of the hilariously absurd characters in Gilbert & Sullivan’s most beloved work, The Mikado. Set in the fictional town of Titipu, The Mikado is a tale of the beautiful school girl Yum-Yum who is engaged to be married to Ko-Ko despite her love for the romantic wandering minstrel, Nanki-Poo. Will these two young lovers find their happily-ever-after… or will heads roll? This deliciously witty musical satire of social mores and politics is sure to delight audiences of all ages!
