Cultures collide and anything goes in this superb production, being staged to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the founding of HAODS! HAODS first show in 1922 was – you guessed it, The Mikado so we celebrate by bringing it right up to date with this swinging adaptation! There will be five performances, with a Gala black-tie performance on Thursday 17 November, with a champagne & canapes reception and a “meet the cast” in the HAODS Studio, after the performance. (A limited number of normal price tickets will also be available). Sporting the same wit and music attributed to the legendary Gilbert & Sullivan but given a modern twist by David H Bell and Rob Bowman, incorporating gospel, blues, rock and swing! And who knows who will turn up? This fun-filled, musical, with the implausible plot, will delight audiences and performers alike.
