The last date listed for The Mikado was Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 / 3:00pm.
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!
