About the Show

Libretto by Mira-Rose Kingsbury Lee ’24; Lyrics by LyLena Estabine ’24
Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan
Stage Directed by Victoria Gong ’23; Music Directed by Keagan Yap ’25
Produced by Clarissa Briasco-Stewart ’24, Olympia Hatzilambrou ’24, Ian Svetkey ’25, and Abigail White ’24

In the futuristic world of Chinese-dominated London, a boat worker named Wang Rou dreams of herding goats, an occupation usually reserved for the noble rural families. When her sister falls in love with a noble lady (who is, rather inconveniently, sailing to the Emperor’s palace to be betrothed), Rou joins up with a gang of dairy-loving anarchists to get what she wants – and get her sister married.

Featuring a completely original libretto and lyrics set to beloved Sir Arthur Sullivan music, The Milk Made is the result of the year-long HRG&SP Rewrite Project (see below for details). Our librettist and lyricist have spent months carefully crafting the show as an homage to the creativity and humor of the Gilbert & Sullivan canon, and we can’t wait to share their work with you.

Join HRG&SP for our Spring 2022 production of The Milk Made!
