The Renaissance Youth Opera Theatre
will present two fun-filled musicals on January 26 and 27 at the Renaissance Theatre. The show will open with “Hot Mikado,” followed by Michael Thomas’ original production, “Marco Polo Jones: The Road to Shanghai”. The productions are directed by Lori Turner.
“Hot Mikado” is a hilarious and “hot” updated version of Gilbert and Sullivan’s perennial classic, “The Mikado.” The production of “Hot Mikado” is set in Japan in the 1940s with a tale where, despite life-or-death stakes, characters find time to tap their toes and do their fair share of scatting. The music includes sounds of jazz, hot gospel, blues, rock, Cab Calloway swing and torch songs. Read More
