Based on popular operettas by William S. Gilbert and Arthur S. Sullivan, “The Mikado” opens Friday at Miners Foundry Cultural Center.

Nevada County Performing Arts Guild will also present the musical Saturday and Sunday and Nov. 8 to 10.

This all-ages version, adapted by PAG’s Mila Johansen, has two-thirds music and one-third dialogue. Forty-eight area youth are in “The Mikado,” which is about Nanki-Poo, the son of the mikado (emperor of Japan). Leaving the palace, Nanki-Poo disguises himself as a musician and travels from town to town until he becomes involved in the little town of Tittipu’s silly policies. When the mikado arrives, chaos breaks out. The musical’s costumes were made by Elly Award-winning designer Catherine Ione.

Friday performances are at 7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday performances are at 2 p.m.

Admission for children 12 and under is $4 in advance and $5 at the door. Admission for adults is $8 in advance and $9 at the door. Tickets are at the Record Connection, Odyssey Books, BriarPatch and Harmony Books.

The Foundry is at 325 Spring St., Nevada City. Call 277-7100 for more information or reservations.
