This will be Stone Revellers first ever Gilbert & Sullivan production. The Mikado is a continually popular hit with audiences and, whilst this isn’t a complete re-imagining, we are excited that our less than typical presentation of the story will bring it to life for both established G&S fans and those less familiar with this classic piece of British theatre.
So to the story… Nanki-Poo loves Yum-Yum. Just one snag, she’s betrothed to Ko-Ko, the new Lord High Executioner. Just to add a spanner in to the works, Ko-Ko needs to find someone to execute or it’s his own neck on the block. Maybe Ko-Ko and Nanki-Poo can come to some arrangement… without anyone losing their head?
The story of The Mikado is no simple tale, it twists and turns, it’s wacky and, at times, flat-out absurd. To ensure we do a good job of telling the tale, Stone Revellers has assumed the guise of a travelling band of players, with all the props and costume they can carry to bring this fantastic story to life. It’s a slightly different approach but one we are sure our audiences will enjoy.
The combination of Gilbert’s virtuosic wit, Sullivan’s memorable melodies and some classic Revellers antics will be sure to make this an irresistible treat for all our audiences to remember.
