Help us build sets and make costumes for this great operetta!

About the Project

Please help us build our sets and make and buy great costumes and props for our upcoming production of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado, set in 1920s London!  We are hoping to raise $10,000 to defray our production costs for Mikado.  Sets and costumes will cost approximately $8000, and props, equipment rental, production supplies and orchestra expenses push our costs up to $10,000 for this show. Your tax deductible donations toward this effort will be greatly appreciated!

Also, Board members of the Forgotten Opera Company and Victorian Lyric Opera Company will match the first $3885 of donations made to this campaign, so please give early to take advantage of these matching funds!  You can make your contributions work twice as hard to help this great production!

The Victorian Lyric Opera Company is presenting Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado.  The show will be performed June 9 and 10, 16 and 17, 2017 at 8 pm, and June 11 and 18, 2017 at 2 pm.  The Mikado will take place at the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, which is in Rockville Civic Center Park, at 603 Edmonston Drive in Rockville, Maryland.  Tickets are $28 for adults, $24 for seniors and $20 for students.  You can buy tickets online at VLOC.org. 

This new interpretation of Gilbert & Sullivan's timeless classic is set in London in the 1920s, in the Hotel Titipu Japan!  Please don't miss this great cast of performers accompanied by a full orchestra!
