About the Show/Event
Information for The Scarlet Pimpernel at Theatre Royal, Bath (Kids show). The revolution is in full swing and Madame Guillotine's blade chops night and day. But on the perilous streets of Paris, whispers abound that a mysterious band of Englishmen are helping French aristos to escape, led by a flamboyant masked hero. But who is this elusive and reckless daredevil? This Christmas, help us uncover the real identity of that master of disguise, the famed Scarlet Pimpernel! The Scarlet Pimpernel comes to you from the team behind last year's Little Mermaid. Blackadder meets The Incredibles in a laugh-out-loud comedic romp jam-packed with elaborate hoaxes, buffoonery and nincompoops. In a world where men dress as women, and women dress as men, nothing is as it seems. With plenty of song, outrageous fashion, intrigue and derring-do, this swashbuckling tale is the perfect festive treat. Just be careful not to lose your head! Based on the book by Baroness Orezy.
