Pacific Stageworks Presents “The Mikado” July 5-7



Pacific Stageworks, for one weekend only, is presenting Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Mikado”,  July 5-7 at the Heathman Lodge, at 2 pm (Sat. & Sun.) & 8 pm.

A zesty musical comedy sparkling with wit and whimsy, director Tony Bump places the performance of “The Mikado” in a modern cocktail party/fundraiser for a local theatre company.  AudiencPlaye members are encouraged to dress in a kimono and sing along with familiar songs such as “Three Little Maids from School,” “Tit Willow,” and “To Sit In Solemn Silence.”

Ko-Ko learns of a decree from the Mikado (David Hicks of Portland) that, unless an execution occurs within a month, the city will be reduced to the rank of a village. Neither the noble lord Pish-Tush (Gary Bock of Ridgefield) nor the Lord High Everything Else, Pooh-Bah (IZ Darling of Portland), will volunteer to be executed. Complications occur with the arrival of the Mikado, accompanied by the ever-formidable Katisha.

Additional cast members include Jeanna Reed (Battle Ground), Kathleen Jung (Ridgefield), Ashley Hall (Bellingham), Garry Bastian & Zak Campbell (Vancouver), and Kaylen Ostrom (Camas).

Witty lyrics and brilliantly constructed plot twists make this light-hearted tale of forbidden love, deception, and beheadings a favorite among theatre-goers since 1885.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $17 at the door.  Audience members wearing a kimono will receive a $1 discount.  Tickets may be ordered at www.pacificstageworks.com or by calling 360-213-5174.  Please do not contact the Heathman Lodge with questions. The Heathman Lodge is located at 7801 NE Greenwood Dr. Vancouver, WA 98662.
