Hot Mikado - Gilbert & Sullivan Classic

February 14, 2019

Gilbert and Sullivan, two of the world’s most famous composers, have been influencing pop-culture for the last 150 years and were fundamental in the development of modern musical theatre. It is no surprise that G&S shows written in the 1800's are still loved and relevant today. 


The popular Operetta, The Mikado, written in 1885, has been appropriated into the Hot Mikado, complete with updated music in the style of Jazz with a swing vibe and will be presented this month by Young People’s Theatre and Lindsay Street Players as the first production of the 2019 season.

Directed by Amber Lewis with musical direction by Brent Hanson and Freya Meredith and choreography by Chelsea Willis, the show features the group's talented senior students and young adult members. With a mighty cast of 22, complete with a live onstage band and impressive dance moves, are sure to have you dancing in your seats. 

Hot Mikado tells a hilarious tale, during which, despite life-or-death stakes, characters still find time to tap their toes and do their fair share of scatting. Set in a jazz club with a live band, this show has high energy and exciting choreography - it’s sure to entertain! 

Hot Mikado plays for eight performances at the YPT Theatre, corner of Lindsay and Lawson Street, Hamilton from 8–23 February 2019. All tickets are $20-25, available at or by phoning 4961 4895 between 9am–1pm on Saturdays.
