Williamstown Musical Theatre Company is proud to present HOT MIKADO running from the 18th to 26th May 2018 at the Centenary Theatre, Williamstown for 6 performances only!
Nanki-poo, returns to the Japanese town of Titipu to claim his lover, Yum-yum – only to find she is betrothed to her guardian Ko-ko, the Lord High Executioner of Titipu. Nanki-poo is, in fact, the son of the Mikado who has fled his father’s court to escape from Katisha, an elderly lady of the court who has accused him of the capital crime of flirting. Ko-ko, meanwhile, finds himself in need of a sacrificial victim since the Mikado has noted that he has not fulfilled his quota of executions. When Katisha arrives in search of Nanki-poo, and Mikado himself follows in search of his son, the town is thrown into panic and confusion. Can true love win out.
Cultures glide and collide in this hilarious and ‘HOT’ updating of Gilbert and Sullivan’s ‘The Mikado’. Hot Mikado weaves a snappy and fun packed tale where despite life or death stakes, characters still find time to tap their toes and sing their troubles away. Japanese culture meets 1940s America in a land where outlandish laws sentence people to death for almost any indiscretion, and jazz, the blues and gospel are spoken fluently.
