The Mikado


The Mikado

Due to the precarious financial position we found ourselves after the Gulf War forced a reduction in ticket sales for "The Yeomen of the Guard", we decided to play safe in 1992,returning to a show, although performed 7 years previously, was sure to be popular with our audiences. "The Mikado" of 1992, however was in no way a repetition of the traditional production of 1985.This time Director Helen Eleasari dreamed up a modern version complete with cellphones, secret service agents and schoolgirls with headphones attached to their ears.
Leonti Wolf precision trained the choir and soloists in his usual non-compromising manner and Richard Bennett stage-managed. Lynn and Menahem Friedman
produced and full houses meant that a wonderful time was had by one and all. In short, mission accomplished.
