The story follows the mischief of crooked army recruiting officers, Captain Plume and Sergeant Kite, as they head to the town of Shrewsbury to persuade men to take the Queen’s Shilling by any means, legal or otherwise! Plume has set his cap at the richest heiress in town, the vivacious Sylvia, and their bumpy path to true love is mirrored by their closest friends, nervy, melancholy Worthy, and haughty, comically self-important Melinda. Help and hindrance come in equal measure from Captain Brazen, the foppiest of Fops. Be prepared for saucy shenanigans in a hilarious frolic awash with deceit, passion, and surprises galore!
Join the dashing Captain Plume and the devious Sergeant Kite on a rollercoaster ride in period costume fun for all the family.
