STONY BATTER RESERVE, Gun emplacement tunnel guided tours. See fortstonybatter.org.nz. Mikado hits the road On guard: Alex Balfour tries on his costume for The Mikado. The Waiheke Choral Society production of the famous Gilbert and Sullivan operetta opens at the Rocky Bay Hall on June 1. Rehearsals are in full swing for the Waiheke Island Choral Society's travelling production of Gilbert and Sullivan's most popular operetta The Mikado. The Rocky Bay Hall is set to be packed for opening night on June 1. The last choral society productions at the hall, Last Tango in Little Oneroa and Last Panto in Oneroa, were well received. The show will stay in Rocky Bay for its June 2 performance and will move to the Onetangi Hall on June 8 and Palm Beach Hall on June 9. The final three performances on the weekend of the June 15 will be at Artworks Theatre. The simple set makes it an ideal show for taking on the road, director Alan Knight says. ''A backdrop, a few chairs and swords, and of course the fabulous costumes -- oh, and let's not forget the beheading block for the Lord High Executioner.'' Set in medieval Japan, The Mikado makes fun of pretentious nobles and corrupt politicians, while telling the story of a love affair that runs counter to social conventions. Where Gilbert's original text targeted the Pooh-bahs of the Victorian era, the choral society has engaged in some light editing to lampoon local magnates instead. ''We're having a ball doing this,'' Alan says. ''This is going to be a cracker of a show.'' Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for stu- dents and gold card holders, and $10 for children 12 and under, from choral society members and at the door. Artworks Theatre tickets will be available at Time Out cafe.
