at the Rose Theatre Kidderminster
Director: John Jones
Musical Director: Barry Hipkiss
Choreographer: Wendy Richards
East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940′s style updating of the perennial G&S classic.
Gilbert’s comic “topsey turvey” plot set in the Japanese town of Titipu remains but Sullivan’s music is transmuted into blues, Cab Calloway swing, hot gospel and scorching torch songs while the “Three Little Maids” are turned into an Andrews Sisters’ show-stopper.
KODS zoot-suited, tap-dancing interpretation of this comic musical masterpiece is guaranteed to provide a foot tapping, colourful, fun packed evening out for the whole family.
