The Scarlet Pimpernel is a musical with music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics and book by Nan Knighton, based on the 1905 novel of the same name by Baroness Orczy. The show is set in England and France during the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution. The story is a precursor to the spy fiction and the superhero genres, where a hero hides under a mild-mannered alias.

Guillotine, swords, fights and lots of lace, perfumes and clothes that “do shimmer so”. It’s an epic action musical with a lot of comedic moments. The whole show moves at a fair pace so it will be an exciting spectacle for the audience.
