San Diego Lovers Of Musical Theatre! Sing Along With THE MIKADO, 9/23

San Diego Lovers Of Musical Theatre! Sing Along With THE MIKADO, 9/23When a work of musical theatre becomes so beloved and well-known, such a part of the cultural landscape, that aficionados sitting in the audience can barely resist the urge to sing along with the songs they know and love so well-why not let them, and even encourage them?

That's the inspiration behind Bodhi Tree Concerts' next concert, a Sing-Along performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's classic farce THE MIKADO. The cast may be top-notch, including Michael Sokol as Koko, Alvin Almazan as Nanki-Poo, Megan Schulze as Yum-Yum, Sharmay Musacchio as Katisha, and Walter DuMelle as Pooh-Bah, but that doesn't mean they will mind at all when audience members join in the fun. The hijinks are kept in hand by music director Janie Prim.

Don't have a Mikado chorus score lying around to bring to the sing-along? That's okay! Chorus scores will be sold at the door!

Proceeds benefit Elderhelp of San Diego www.bodhitreeconcerts.org.

As for the plot: In the town of Titipu, a young man, Nanki-Poo, has been sentenced to death for violating the Mikado's law against flirting... so begins arguably the most popular of Gilbert & Sullivan's classic and hilarious tales. "Three Little Maids," "Tit-Willow," and "I've Got a Little List" are just a few of the favorite songs from this masterpiece.

As with all performances by Bodhi Tree Concerts, all proceeds from this concert will go to support a local nonprofit-in this case, ElderHelp of San Diego, whose mission is to ensure San Diego seniors can remain independent and live with dignity in their own homes.

Tickets to all Bodhi Tree Concerts are $25, $15 for students and military, and can be purchased online at www.bodhitreeconcerts.org.
