Exclusive: All-male Mikado to tour the UK
Following her successful all-male production of HMS Pinafore Sasha Regan presents The Mikado
A new all-male production of The Mikado or The Town of Titipu is to tour the UK.
Following her successful all-male productions of HMS Pinafore and The Pirates of Penzance, Sasha Regan will stage a production of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera.
The show will open at Theatre Royal, Bath, before touring to cities including Winchester, Edinburgh, London, Exeter and Salford between 18 April and 29 July this year.
The Mikado is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most-loved works and this production transports the action to 1950s England where a school camping trip is visiting the land of Titipu where flirting is banned.
The cast includes Richard Munday as Nanki-Poo, David McKechnie as Ko-ko, Ben Vivian- Jones as Pish-Tush, Alan Richardson as Yum-Yum, Jame Jukes as Pitti-Sing, Richard Russell Edwards as Peep-Bo, Alex Weatherhill as Katisha, James Waud as Mikado and Matthew Hobbs, Daniel Slade, Joey Warne, Jordan Ginger, Peter Houston and Daniel Miles in the ensemble.
Regan's Pirates of Penzance first opened at the Union Theatre in 2009 and toured the UK in 2015. HMS Pinafore toured nationwide last year.
Regan is artistic director of the Union Theatre and was awarded the Special Achievement Award at the Off West End Awards this year for her contribution to musical theatre.
The Mikado opens at Theatre Royal, Bath 18 April and runs to 22 April. It then tours nationwide.
