The Mikado, brought to you by the Mississippi Mudds

 

 

On behalf of the Mississippi Mudds theatre group of Carleton Place, I would like to extend an invitation to you to join us for The Mikado, yet another enchanting Gilbert and Sullivan musical masterpiece. Whether or not you may know the show, you are in for a treat for the eyes, the ears, and the sense of humour.

The Mikado is a funny story of royalty in disguise, of lovers that cannot be together, of tricks, lies, and threats of public execution! Of course, it is a Gilbert and Sullivan musical, so above all, The Mikado is a story about everything working out in the end.

Gilbert and Sullivan wrote and performed this musical in 1885. The duo wrote satirical musicals that reflect the then-modern society back onto itself, and The Mikado is no different. Although set in Japan in a fictional town, the musical was written and performed at a time when England was obsessed with The Orient and its mystical culture, beautiful clothing, and elegant customs. All sorts of goods, fashions, ideas, and stories were being imported from Japan and England had a sort of love affair with the craze.

Gilbert and Sullivan used this show to mock high society and their insatiable appetites for what is trendy and new, and their ignorance of the true meaning of what they appropriate from other cultures. This show does not make fun of Japanese culture, but rather makes fun of the perception of the Japanese culture at the time.

So please join us at Carleton Place Town Hall on Nov. 30, Dec. 1 and 2, or Dec. 7 to 9 for The Mikado.
