In April 2015 EHOS went back to their roots with this performance 55 years on from our very first production of The Mikado.
East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940’s-style update of a Gilbert and Sullivan favorite. Featuring an intoxicating mix of styles and influences, classics such as A Wand’ring Minstrel I and Three Little Maids are transmuted into show-stopping blues, swing, hot gospel numbers and scorching torch songs.
Find out what happens when the clean lines and color of Japanese design combine with the big band sights and sounds of popular American song and dance!
After bribing various officials he learns that she is still going to be marrying a former tailor turned Lord High executioner, Koko. Meanwhile, the Mikado demands that Ko-Ko execute one person within the next month.
Nanki-Poo agrees to be executed as long as he can spend a month as Yum-Yum’s husband. However, the plan goes awry when the Mikado makes a surprise visit to Titipu and brings with him Katisha, an older woman who is pursuing Nanki Pooh.
Luckily, Nanki-Poo is not excuted because he is the Mikado’s long lost son. Further, Ko-Ko and Katisha fall in love so Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum can stay married.
