A year before the action of this operetta begins, Nanki-Poo, son of the Mikado, fled his father’s house to escape marriage with Katisha, a rather imposing lady. Disguised as a travelling musician, he meets and falls in love with Yum-Yum, the young ward of Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor. Yum-Yum, however, is already betrothed to her guardian, leaving Nanki-Poo in despair.

This production will be in keeping with the major story and elements, while placing the show in a different, and slightly more modern setting.
