Charity production of The Mikado will raise funds for The Martha Trust and Bandawe School for the Deaf in Malawi
9:30am Sunday 12th August 2012 in Music & Dance
GILBERT and Sullivan’s The Mikado is coming to Hereford for a unique charity production.
A cast of 40 local people and a full orchestra made up of professionals and talented young musicians have been brought together for the project, the brainchild of Leominster GP Crispin Fisher and his music teacher wife Kari.
Crispin will be playing Pooh-Bah, and the production also stars Simon Andrews as Ko-Ko, Kate Jones as Katisha and Amalie Fisher as Yum- Yum. The chorus includes several ex-cathedral choristers as well as members of girls’ choir Cantabile.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Hereford charity The Martha Trust, and the Bandawe School for the Deaf in Malawi, where Herefordshire couple Bill and Liz Ottaway are now living and working.
Fully staged and costumed, this will be a sparkling production of Gilbert’s cutting satire of the British set in a fantastical vision of Japan, with Sullivan’s best score and most memorable songs.
The show runs from August 23 to 25 at the HMTC Theatre on Whitecross Road. Tickets are available from The Outback in Hereford, Canon Pyon Stores, or The Marches Surgery in Leominster, at £10 or £7 concessions.
