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.

The music includes sounds of jazz, hot gospel, blues, rock, Cab Calloway swing and torch songs. More…
