It's like voting

We had to get to a performance of The Mikado as soon as possible, in case we're looking the wrong way when crossing the street and don't get to do it later on. The Austin High location is much more convenient than going all the way out to St. Stephen's and the acoustics are much better than those at the School for the Deaf. Costumes were ingenious, and the lighting and set were very professional and atmospheric for the small investment in resources. Where else can you enjoy funny lyrics, fine music, excellent vocal performances, and everything else, all accompanied by an eleven-piece orchestra? Austin is indeed a wonderful place for its size. And we enjoyed the live studio performances a few nights ago broadast from KMFA, and featuring songs by the KoKo, Nanki-Poo, and Yum-Yum, all to the tune of a lively piano arrangement of the music. I think it was the musical conductor who played the piano at the station. Thursday performances offer half-price tickets, and those under 18 get in for a mere five dollars.
