An all-male production of The Mikado is making its world debut in Bath this week ahead of its UK tour.

The story brings to life some of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular and eccentric characters as it explores the issues of love, corruption, and heroics.

Sasha Regan has produced this version of the show, and has a history of staging productions which attract huge audiences.

Her previous versions of Gilbert and Sullivan’s work include The Pirates Of Penzance, and HMS Pinafore.

The Mikado takes audiences on a trip back to the 1950s where a school camping trip takes a hilarious turn with typical Gilbert and Sullivan humour.

It pokes fun at British institutions and includes the songs Three Little Maids and Some Day It Might Happen.

The Mikado will be at the Theatre Royal, in Sawclose, from tonight (Thursday) until Saturday with performances at 7.30pm tonight and Friday and 8pm on Saturday.

There will also be a matinee performance on Saturday at 2.30pm.

Tickets, priced £20-32.50, are available by calling 01225 448844 or online via www.theatreroyal.org.uk
