Delight in The Mikado, a two-act comedic opera performed by the Gilbert & Sullivan Players, unlike anything you’ve seen before. The story of The Mikado revolves around Nanki-Poo, son of the Mikado of Japan, who has fled his father’s imperial court. Disguised as a traveling musician in Titipu, he finds himself in love with a beautiful young lady named Yum-Yum who is unfortunately engaged to be married to her guardian, Ko-Ko. When he hears that Ko-Ko has been condemned to death, he hastily returns to Titipu to claim his love but soon learns that Ko-Ko has not only been granted a reprieve, but has been promoted to the post of Lord High Executioner. Wishing to slow down the rash of executions, Titipu’s leaders reason that since Ko-Ko was next in line for execution, he can't cut off anyone else's head until he cuts off his own. Ko-Ko, desperate to avoid cutting off his own head, vows to find a substitute, and as luck would have it, a heart-broken Nanki-Poo has declared he would rather die than live life without his beloved. Ko-Ko immediately offers Nanki-Poo one month of luxurious living at the end of which he will be relatively painlessly decapitated. Nanki-Poo agrees on the one condition that he be married to Yum-Yum right away so that he can spend his last month in wedded bliss. But just as the wedding celebration begins, a law is discovered that shocks everyone! [less-]

Enjoy a special night out with friends all for a good cause. TBTTT’s 2018 Gala will feature live music by Ronnie Dee and the Superstars, extraordinary silent auction items, complimentary wine and beer, great food, and lots of photo opportunities.

Proceeds will benefit TBTTT’s community outreach program in an ongoing effort to sponsor lower income local community schools to attend our theatrical productions, fund the start-up of new productions, provide necessary professional development for our faculty to incorporate special needs children into their classrooms, engage senior citizens in the arts, and provide scholarships for those who otherwise would be unable to experience dance and the arts.

Everyone is invited! Help support children in the Arts!

We are looking forward to seeing you on this special evening.

What is power2give.org?

It’s Tampa Bay’s new funding platform for local arts organizations! The concept is simple: Nonprofit organizations list needs for a specific project – for example, costumes for an upcoming show or instruments for undeserved children. Visitors to the site choose the project that matches their interests or touches their hearts and make a donation. The donation may be as little as $5 but that very important contribution supports local arts and enables creativity to flourish.
With tools and resources for both donors and cultural organizations, power2give.org makes posting, donating and promoting projects convenient and engaging. On power2give, all gifts are processed even if the project only receives partial funding. Unlike some crowd funding sites, you keep the money you raise whether you hit your target or not. Projects are listed on the site for a maximum of 90 days, or until they meet their financial goals.

Who can post projects?

You may post a project if:

  • You represent a 501(c)3 nonprofit arts and cultural organization located in Hillsborough or Pinellas Counties that has been registered as a charitable organization with the State of Florida for at least one year at the time of posting
  • You are authorized to post projects on behalf of the 501(c)3 that you represent
  • You hold a valid solicitation agreement in the State of Florida (If you are a professional solicitor, you are registered with the State of Florida and have a valid solicitation agreement with the 501(c)3 that you represent.)
  • You can provide a copy of the organization’s 2012 990 IRS Form

Project Requirements

  • Project funding will be used only for the intended purpose you state on the site
  • Projects posted to the site will only be related to arts and culture organizations
  • Project request amounts will not exceed $10,000.
