Step into the whimsical world of Titipu with “The Mikado,” a delightful operetta set in Japan during the Victorian era. This timeless production follows the misadventures of Nanki-Poo, the son of the Mikado who disguises himself as a wandering minstrel to escape an arranged marriage with the elderly Katisha. Along the way, Nanki-Poo falls in love with the beautiful maiden Yum-Yum, who is engaged to the bumbling Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner of Titipu.

As the plot unfolds, the characters become entangled in a series of humorous misunderstandings, mistaken identities, and romantic entanglements. From the absurd antics of the bumbling Ko-Ko to the clever schemes of the conniving Pooh-Bah, “The Mikado” is a delightful romp filled with catchy tunes, witty lyrics, and larger-than-life characters.

With its timeless themes of love, honor, and duty, “The Mikado” remains one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most beloved works. Join us as we journey to the fictional town of Titipu and immerse ourselves in a world of charming melodies, comic antics, and spirited performances. Whether you’re a newcomer to the world of operetta or a seasoned fan, “The Mikado” promises an evening of laughter, music, and merriment that will leave you humming its tunes long after the final curtain falls.
