  • Synopsis

    “What happens when the Emperor’s son goes AWOL; and the Emperor arrives to discover he has been decapitated by the Lord High Executioner, on the Emperor’s own orders? Come and find out who will be beheaded, who buried alive, and who boiled in oil in this exciting new production by Director Bev Hatton (suitable for children of all ages !!).”

    ‘The Mikado’ – How many other Gilbert & Sullivan shows can boast so many unforgettable tunes – ‘Three Little Maids from School’, ‘Behold the Lord High Executioner’, ‘I’ve got a little List’, ‘A Wandering Minstrel I’, ‘The Sun and I’, ‘The Punishment Fit the Crime’, ‘The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring’,’Tit Willow’, to name but eight, all wrapped up in a brand-new production by Bev Hatton. And, in spite of some near decapitation and boiling in oil, it’s fun for all the family too.
