Résumé: Picture a little town in Japan where flirting is punishable by death. Unsurprisingly, its citizens are finding the law rather, well... tiresome. They appoint Ko Ko, a lowly tailor, as Lord High Executioner, himself condemned for flirting and so not likely to execute anyone. Throw in the beautiful Yum Yum, her ardent admirer Nanki-Poo, errant son of the Mikado, and the man-eater Katisha, and you have one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most famous comic operas in all its wonderful absurdity.

Genèse: Casper Musical with book and lyrics by David H Bell and music by Henry Marsh and Phil Pickett. Directed by David H Bell. Casper The Friendly Ghost comes alive on the stage! A Steven Spielburg movie and top rating television series to his name, Casper, the friendly ghost all children love now makes a spirited debut into the London Theatre scene, with a multi-talented cast in a high-tech, all singing, all dancing musical, with special effects to die for! Living in a crumbling New York mansion with his uncles and a cellar full of his slightly unusual friends, Casper's life is rudely interrupted by the arrival of some property developers who have to solicit the aid of the ghostbusters when they realise that they are up against a problem that can't be solved by the usual means! The battle for possession of the property between it's ghostly inhabitants and those intent on displacing them makes for a very funny, highly spectacular and only "pretend" frightening musical, which can be enjoyed by children of all ages.
