An all male Mikado at Cambridge Arts Theatre

Sasha Regan’s all male Mikado will be at Cambridge Arts Theatre from Tuesday June 27 to Saturday, July 1.
The Australian director’s all male Gilbert and Sullivan’s are acclaimed and last year’s HMS Pinafore won a Best Off End Production award. Regan was also recently awarded the Special Achievement Award at the 2017 Off West End Awards for her contribution to musical theatre.
It’s all clever stuff, but some of us miss the women’s voices and it does put a different spin on favourite pieces like Three Little Maids from School. This production of the Victorian masterpiece is set in the 1950 when a school camping trip takes us to the far away land of Titipu, where, as ever in the Savoy Operas, everyone takes full advantage of playfully poking fun at British institutions, morals and conventions.
7.45pm with matinees Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets 01223 503333 or www.cambridgeartstheatre.com
