Crystal Sea Drama Company will be performing the most well-known Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, The Mikado, with traditional kimonos and Japanese settings. See what happens when Nanki-Poo, son of the Mikado of Japan, flees his father’s imperial court to escape marriage with Katisha, an elderly lady. Disguised as a travelling musician, he meets and falls in love with Yum-Yum, the young ward of Ko-Ko, a flirtatious cheap tailor, now Lord High Executioner in the town of Titipu. Yum-Yum, however, was already betrothed to her guardian, and so the fun begins. Add Pooh-Bah, Pitti-Sing, Peep-Bo, the return of the Mikado with Katisha in tow, as well as a mandatory execution, and you will come to see why this production has delighted audiences for almost a century.    

February 16-17, 22-24, 7:30 p.m.
