2018 cast

In our 23 October 2017 post we announced our principal cast for The Mikado as “a mix of old friends and new faces, all looking forward to bringing the town of Titipu to life on the stage of the Carnegie Hall. Our former President George Alexander will be exercising his committee experience as Pooh-Bah, the very important town official, ably assisted by Martin Tarr as Pish-Tush. Sinead Black reprises the role of Peep-Bo, and we welcome Lindsey Cotter and Katy Williamson as Yum-Yum and Pitti-Sing to complete the classic Three Little Maids line-up. Alex Gunn wanders our way as the dashing tenor lead Nanki-Poo, pursued by His Royal Highness The Mikado of Japan, played by Matthew Sielewicz. Susanne Horsburgh and Robin Ozog complete the line-up, driving the action as Katisha and KoKo.”

The post very cleverly disguised the fact that one of Rae Lamond’s ‘tweaks’ was to cast Robin Ożóg as Katisha and Susanne Horsburgh as Ko-Ko! This swap was deliberately kept secret, with no conventional cast list on website or programme.

However, we can now reveal that the principals in our production of Mikado in February 2018 were:
