Sasha Regan’s joyous all-male production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado is set to bring a huge dollop of cheer to Cornwall this summer. Expect plenty of tuneful golden earworms from a sensational cast singing all the familiar rollicking Gilbert & Sullivan classics including: A Wand’ring Minstrel, I; Behold the Lord High Executioner!, and Three Little Maids From School Are We.
The all-male The Mikado first toured in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim. It arrives in Truro hot-on-the-heels of Sasha Regan’s smash hit runs of the all-male H.M.S. Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance (Wilton’s Music Hall and the Palace Theatre, West End).
Regan’s inventive all-male staging is inspired by her experiences of same sex school Gilbert & Sullivan productions. The action is cleverly and playfully transported to the 1950s when an all-boys’ school camping trip is visiting the land of Titipu. Adventures and topsy-turvy capers follow!
Gilbert & Sullivan’s inherent humour, satire on the English establishment and timeless tunefulness are married with Regan’s wicked sense of fun. The perfect uplifting tonic. Unmissable, toe-tapping fun.
Tickets are flying faster than tent pegs! Book now for the perfect uplifting summer sizzler, starring local actor and Treasure Island performer, Aidan Nightingale, as Albert Barr.
