the hilarious hit swing adaptation
of Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic

Hot mikado

Havering Music Makers present Hot Mikado


Set in 1940s Japan, but with a twist, Hot Mikado is a classic tale of forbidden love.

The Emperor of Japan’s son, Nanki Poo, who is masquerading as a poor musician, falls head over heels in love with the beautiful Yum Yum, but she is engaged to the Lord High Executioner – someone not to be messed with!

Favourites such as ‘Three Little Maids’ and ‘A Wand’ring Minstrel I’ are transformed into fantastic show-stopping numbers.

Following on from their fantastic production of Sweeney Todd in 2016, Havering Music Makers presents this high-energy musical comedy, with an eclectic mix of blues, jazz, swing and gospel – and a big dose of flirting thrown in for good measure – which will have you tapping your toes from start to finish. 



Based on 'The Mikado' by W.  S . Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan.

Orignally produced at Ford's Theatre, Washington, D.C., Frankie Hewitt, Producing Director.


This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe
