    The Scarlet Pimpernel is a swashbuckling musical based on the adventure novel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy, set during the reign of terror following The French Revolution. A secret society of English aristocrats, known as The League Of The Scarlet Pimpernel, is engaged in rescuing their French counterparts from the guillotine. Their leader is The Scarlet Pimpernel. Despite being the talk of London society, no one except his small band of followers, and possibly his close friend The Prince Of Wales, knows the Pimpernel's true identity. Set in the late 1700s with a wonderful musical score by Frank Wildhorn, a hilarious libretto and lavish costumes, this is certainly not a production to miss.

    The Festival Players make a welcome return to The Mumford Theatre with The Scarlet Pimpernel - an ideal show to follow their critically acclaimed production of The Witches Of Eastwick: "The most talked about show of 2007" (Combinations review).
