DON’T miss Illyria’s final show of the summer season at Cardigan Castle with a performance of The Mikado.

Expect a witty, captivating and family-friendly performance of this much-loved comic opera on Sunday, August 27 at 7pm.

In the town of Titipu flirting has been made illegal. The penalty, by order of The Mikado, is death.

Too bad then that the main culprit is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko, who wishes to marry his beautiful young ward Yum-Yum and who has no intention of executing himself.

Can the itinerant musician Nanki-Poo be persuaded to be executed in his place? And what would happen if anyone should dare to tell the Mikado that an execution had taken place when in fact it hadn’t…?

The Cardigan Castle-Theatr Mwldan summer season continues with this family show from outdoor theatre favourites, Illyria. Suitable for ages five and above.

Tickets for The Mikado are £15 (£13 concessions), £11 for children and are available to book from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621200, online or via smart phone at or by downloading our app.

Running time including interval is 140 minutes. No seating provided – you may bring your own low-backed chair.

Illyria was the first company to tour children’s theatre on this scale in the open-air touring sector. Following their enormous successes with Danny the Champion of the World, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, George’s Marvellous Medicine, Babe the Sheep-Pig and The Twits, they are also regarded as the best.
