On tour from the 18th April, Sasha Regan’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s most famous operettas will visit Bath, Richmond, Winchester, Shrewsbery, Truro, Cambridge, Brighton, Exeter, Bridlington and Edinburgh.

The crazy storyline takes us to 1950s England where a school camping trip is visiting the far away land of Titipu – a place where flirting is banned on pain of death and where tailors can become Lord High Executioners but cannot cut off another’s head, until they have cut off their own!

Talking about the production Sasha Regan said: “Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing our work playing in some of the most beautiful theatres our country has to offer. 2017 is going to be a great year for us as we bring a brand new staging to our audiences – it’s beyond exciting.”

The idea for creating these all-male productions stems from Regan’s own experiences of performing Gilbert and Sullivan in a single sex school and was recently awarded the Special Achievement Award at the Off West End Awards 2017 for her contribution to musical theatre.
