Baltimore’s Gilbert & Sullivan Company. The Young Victorian Theatre Company presents professional caliber musical theatre productions every summer for audiences of all ages to appreciate and preserve the timeless works of Gilbert & Sullivan.
Welcome to the Town of Titipu, where absurd laws, brazen power grabs and undercover antics reign. This fast-paced musical comedy whirls around a cast of zany characters and hilarious predicaments that are sure to have you delirious with fun!
The Mikado was written as a parody of the Victorian era's political elite and class system, with its farce veiled in an exotic setting. But, the show's timeless satire continues to resonate, even amid today's headlines.
And through it all, Gilbert's clever libretto and Sullivan's delightful score share the stage with beauty, laughter and love. The Mikado is a first-rate treat of musical theatre and not to be missed.

Young Vic is Baltimore's Gilbert & Sullivan company. We began in 1971 as an enthusiastic group of high school students and have evolved into an acclaimed and full-fledged performing arts organization today.
Our professional-caliber productions attract a wide range of promising young talent and accomplished performers. Members of our casts and orchestra have performed on local, national and international stages.
Now in our fifth decade, Young Vic's fiscal responsibility, stable leadership and artistic excellence makes it Baltimore's longest tenured musical theatre and is well supported by the community.
Our mission is to expose Baltimore’s diverse community to distinctive and entertaining musical theatre; foster classically trained and talented artists; and attract new and young audiences who will enjoy the popular and timeless works of Gilbert & Sullivan.
Young Vic performances are on the campus of Roland Park Country School, 5204 Roland Avenue in Baltimore, Maryland.
The theatre entrance is located at the north end of campus, not far from the campus entrance. Signs are posted to direct you to the doors. There is an accessible ramp leading to the doors of the theatre. And inside there is another accessible ramp leading to the box office.
Parking is available in several areas on campus and on Roland Avenue. Elderly and handicapped patrons can be dropped off near the theatre entrance where a courtesy cart will drive them to the doors.
The auditorium aisles are stepped, so if you need assistance, please see an usher. Or please call the box office so we can help you choose the most appropriate seating location.
Access from the parking lot to the box office is accessible for handicapped patrons. Inside the theatre, there are a limited number of wheelchair spots available for each performance. Some partially handicapped patrons may be more comfortable sitting in a seat in the last two or three rows. Sight lines and acoustics are excellent throughout the auditorium. Please call the box office so we can help you choose an appropriate seating location.
The theatre features excellent acoustics and views of the stage with its "stadium" auditorium seating style, where all seat rows are higher than the seats immediately in front. As a result, the auditorium aisles are stepped and not sloped. So if you have any difficulty navigating steps, please call the box office so we can help you choose an appropriate seating location.
The auditorium is air conditioned and while we try to ensure that everyone is comfortable, some patrons may want to bring a light sweater or jacket.
Young Vic performances are great fun for the whole family. And this year we have a special Family Night on Thursday July 19. The show starts 30 minutes earlier at 7:30 and tickets are available at a reduced price. Buy tickets at the Box Office. Please note that group rates are not available for this performance.
All performances are enhanced with surtitles of the lyrics projected above the auditorium stage.
It's a lot of fun staging a theatrical production. And a lot of work too! We always need volunteers for ushering, stage crew, social media and more. Interested? Reach us by using our contact form.
