A brief synopsis:

 

A light-hearted comedy about the fictional town of Titipu, Japan, The Mikado is one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s best known and most celebrated works.

 

The wandering minstrel son of The Mikado falls for and flirts with a girl who is engaged to her guardian Ko-Ko.

 

Unfortunately the Mikado has decreed that ‘flirting is punishable
by death’
and Ko-Ko who has been appointed Lord High Executioner must find someone to execute before the Mikado’s forthcoming visit!

 

Throw a corrupt public official into the mix and confusion

and deceit abounds in typical Gilbert & Sullivan fashion.

Come along to find out what happens and enjoy some wonderful singing and a hilarious plot, which is suitable for all the family.
