The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomens' Guild Operatic Society's Production of 'The Mikado'
McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr
|The Farndale Ladies have ambitions! Bolstered by the success of 'Macbeth' they feel that Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikado is waiting just for them. So, despite the numerous problems with casting, scenery and costumes, Mrs Reece presses onward. But as first night approaches... another problem; the laying low of several of the chorus after a surfeit of potted shrimps! But Mrs Wostenholme (herself bedridden) volunteers her three grand-daughters. Relief! Then on opening night disaster strikes again! Can the Rev. Reg save the day? Can the show go on? Of course it can! So, ladies and gentlemen, for you tonight, the FAHETGOS (who admit they can't sing, they can't dance and they can't act) present their version of The Mikado.
