New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players New Production of ‘The Mikado’ Comes to the Wilson Center This Spring

The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is excited to announce the New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players production of The Mikado on March 2, 2023 at 7:30 p.m. The New York Times calls this production “a comic gem,” with “handsome designs, sharp acting, and impressive singing!”

Don’t miss NYGASP’s new and critically acclaimed production of The Mikado. The Mikado features all of your favorite G&S characters: Yum-Yum, Nanki-Poo, Ko-Ko, the Lord High Executioner with his “little list” of potential victims, as well as the fearsome Katisha, the hilariously ridiculous Pooh-Bah, and the politely sadistic Mikado himself. A brief new prologue set in the offices of the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company frames the classic work for today’s audiences. While the new production underlines how The Mikado can be enjoyed by artists and audiences of all backgrounds, Gilbert’s lyrics and Sullivan’s melodies – which have delighted comic opera lovers for over one hundred thirty-five years – are still as fresh as “the flowers that bloom in the spring.”

The Mikado is part of the Wilson Center’s new Wonder Series, which features a $10 all-inclusive ticket option for students of all ages and a package discount on three or more shows.

Tickets will be available online to Wilson Center Members beginning 10 a.m. on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, with tickets going on sale online to the general public on Friday, October 21, 2022, at 10 a.m. Tickets may be purchased online, or by contacting the Ticket Central box office. Ticket Central is open for telephone and in-person sales from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday only. Ticket Central may be reached by telephone at 910.362.7999; questions may also be directed to
