Director Thom Southerland, who wowed critics and public alike with award-winning, sold out productions of Titanic, Parade and Mack and Mabel, is next directing a radically re-conceived version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s best-loved operetta, The Mikado. In this production, which boasts a Noël Coward sensitivity, Gilbert and Sullivan's delightful, much-loved score will be performed acoustically on two baby grand pianos.
This Hobson’s Choice-inspired take on The Mikado is set in the Titipu Umbrella and Fan Factory, owned by The Mikado. All the familiar characters and songs remain intact, including Yum-Yum, Peep-Bo and Pitti-Sing, who sing the classic Three Little Maids From School Are We, as workers in the department providing fans for local schools.
The cast includes Rebecca Caine (Katisha) and Mark Heenehan (The Mikado), with Matthew Crowe, Leigh Coggins, Hugh Osborne, Steve Watts, Jacob Chapman, Sophie Rohan, Cassandra McCowan, Alyssa Martin, Kayleigh McKnight, Andrew Dovaston, Josh Wylie, Zac Wancke and George Tebbutt.
