In 2011 Illyria raised the bar for the major UK open-air touring theatre companies by becoming the first and only one to add operetta to its regular season.

In the town of Titipu flirting has been made illegal. The penalty, by order of The Mikado, is death. Too bad then that the main culprit is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko, who wishes to marry his beautiful young ward Yum-Yum, and who has no intention of executing himself. Can the itinerant musician Nanki-Poo be persuaded to be executed in his place? Can Pooh-Bah, the one man who occupies every role in public office in Titipu, be persuaded to take advantage of his influential access to himself to bend his own ear? And what would happen if anyone should dare to tell the Mikado that an execution had taken place when in fact it hadn’t…?

Gilbert & Sullivan’s wry comic opera, set in Japan but with satire clearly aimed at the British political classes, gets the complete Illyria treatment. It is performed by a cast of 6 actor/singers accompanied by a musical director on keyboards, and is produced on a stage boasting a strikingly large (and authentic) Japanese torii gate. Despite the reduction in scale, not a single word from WS Gilbert's libretto is cut, nor a single note or harmony from Sir Arthur Sullivan's score unsung.

Following the company’s runaway successes with HMS Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, Iolanthe and Ruddigore, Illyria returns with yet another romantic summer opera to leave you with a great big silly smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Also don't forget to book 'A Comedy of Errors' (Sunday 18th June), 'Macbeth' (Thursday 6th July), 'The Lost World' (Friday 14th July) and 'The Mikado' (Saturday 26th August)

FAQs

Am I only able to now book online for events / excursions with Coolings?

Our online ticket system is by far the easiest way for the majority of our customers to make a booking. However we are still happy to receive phone booking at Coolings Garden Centre on 01959 532269 (payment can be made preferably by credit / debit card over the phone / cheque in the post).

Alternatively you may still visit Coolings Garden Centre in person and make a booking at our customer service desk located in the main shop. If making a booking in person at Coolings you can pay by credit / debit card, cheque or cash.

If paying by cheque for any event / excursion this is only available up until 10 days prior to the event / excursion taking place. If you are booking less than 10 days prior to the event payment must be made by one of the alternative methods.

I am have a Coolings Family Card, can I use it?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Tickets may be transferred with 48 hours notice or 7 days for some holidays but on the day of an event / excursion/ holidays ticket attendee/s should match our registration details.
