The Mikado


Set in the fictional Rugby Operatic’s Rest Home for Retired Performers, this satirical production of the timeless classic “The Mikado” combines the traditional and contemporary.  The engaging characters, silly storyline, wonderful singing and humorous staging all celebrate Sullivan’s glorious music and Gilbert’s wit. Enjoy!
