About This Show

Brought to you by 1950’s Camping Adventures…

“A refreshing and creative take on a classic, complete with impeccable vocal talent”
Everything Theatre

Sasha Regan’s award-winning all-male Gilbert & Sullivan stars are pitching their tents at Wilton’s Music Hall for The Mikado from 7 June to 1 July. Expect plenty of cheer and tuneful earworms from a sensational cast singing all the familiar rollicking G&S classics including: “A Wand’ring Minstrel, I”; “Behold the Lord High Executioner!”, and “Three Little Maids From School Are We”.

Traditionally set in Japan, Sasha Regan’s inventive production transports the action to 1950s England where an all-boys’ school camping trip is visiting the land of Titipu. Topsy-turvy capers follow when Nanki-Poo, the son of Emperor Mikado, flees his father’s imperial court and falls in love with Yum-Yum who is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner…but will heads roll? Find out this summer.

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-wiggling fun.

The all-male The Mikado last toured in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim. It arrives at Wilton’s hot-on-the-heels of Sasha Regan’s recent smash hit all-male H.M.S. Pinafore, and her award-winning The Pirates of Penzance which toured the UK and Australia. Regan’s other widely acclaimed G&S hits include Patience (CRITICS CHOICE) and the Iolanthe (CRITICS CHOICE & TIME OUT’s top 10 musicals).
