Let Epsom Light Opera Company transport you to the 1950s for an up-tempo version of this timeless classic. With modern jazz arrangements of Arthur Sullivan's glorious music whilst retaining all of W. S. Gilbert's bitingly acerbic wit, this show has everything; beautiful ballads, stunning choreography and laugh out loud humour. Get ready to snap your fingers and tap your toes with the ‘Gentlemen Of Japan’, ‘Three Little Maids’ and our favourite wand'ring minstrel, Nanki Poo. If you like your jazz hot and your comedy cool, you will love this sizzling musical.

Join Epsom Light Opera Company as they travel from New York to Deadrock and back again. You'd be crazy not to!
