 Cast of The Mikado

The Mikado
The Town of Titipu.

RCMPI presents its fifth Gilbert and Sullivan production.

A wandering minstrel falls in love with a village school girl but suffers from the jealousy of a local bureaucrat.  The bureaucrat has problems of his own as he has been appointed as the town executioner with the explicit instruction that the first person he executes must be himself.  The town officials who, for efficiency, are all the same person, are much more concerned about following the letter of the Mikado's laws than the intent and things come to a head when the Mikado shows up looking for evidence that someone has been executed......

The Mikado is probably the best known musical from the Gilbert and Sullivan partnership and was their last smash hit.  This comical musical is set in Japan, but it lampoons the British civil service, class structure and bureaucratic red tape.  The popular music, comedy and characters combine to make a show that will be enjoyed by all ages.
