Theater 2020, the Heights’ own professional stage company, will present The Singapore Mikado, an adaptation by Charles Berigan and Heights resident (and Theater 2020 Artistic Director) David Fuller “with a twist” of Gilbert’s and Sullivan’s perhaps most beloved operetta, The Mikado.
It’s December, 1941, just days after Pearl Harbor, and the parish entertainment at a Singapore church is a presentation of The Mikado, performed by British expats, soldiers, sailors, and sundry locals. They happily poke fun at the Empire of the Rising Sun, not knowing that as they sing the Japanese are marching down the Malayan Peninsula and about to take the city!
Performances will be at St. Charles Borromeo Church, 19 Sidney Place, beginning this coming Friday evening, February 13 at 8:00, continuing Saturday evening at 8:00 and Sunday afternoon at 3:00. It will continue on the same schedule through following three weekends until March 8. Get tickets here.
