The Mikado 2021

Mikado POSTER.jpg

A Very Merry Return...

Desperate to get away? Take a trip to the topsy-turvy town of Titipu in the land of Pajan! Find romance, chicanery and a legal conundrum under the capricious eye of the Mikado...


Nanki-Poo cannot marry Yum-Yum because she is betrothed to Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner, who cannot do his duty without executing himself.  Yet when the Mikado insists upon an execution, somehow no-one loses his head…


A production by The Merry Opera Company, directed by John Ramster with musical direction by Bradley Wood.


‘unpretentious, good-humoured frivolity’
~ Nicola Lisle, Oxford Times

It is our absolute Merry pleasure to be returning to the stage with our brand new production of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado. After an incredibly difficult year and a half, we can't think of a better way to celebrate a return to Merry form than with this surprising and high-octane romp through a beloved operetta classic, set against the backdrop of the energy and ebullience of music halls and vaudeville.

Looking forward to seeing you there! We've missed you!

We will, where possible and relevant, include information on Covid-19 safety procedures as advised by each venue in keeping with government guidelines as they develop. Keep an eye out for any further dates. We'll see you very Merry soon!
