themikadoTen students and three faculty members are combining their talents to put on Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, a comedic operetta set in old, mythical Japan.

The show runs Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5 in the Pius X Hall in the Music Building at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students, seniors, and children.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Mikado cast. It isn't every day that students, professors and members of the outside community join together on a project," Melissa Prisco '12 said. "I think that is what enriches this production and makes it so special."

The Mikado is a very funny musical satire on government and law. Faculty members in the show include Lawson Bowling (on the piano), Everett Delahanty, Elizabeth Lewis (of the ARC), and Matthew Pauley

All profits from the shows will go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. For more information, please contact Matthew Pauley.
