Love can make a woman do the strangest things. Set in the 18th century, this tongue-in-cheek musical follows the ruthless Princess Leonide as she literally wears the pants so her beloved Agis can return to his rightful throne. It’s not her fault if this deceptive dress-up causes the entire household to fall in love with her! With her confidante, Corine, by her side, Leonide must rescue her man before his stuffed-shirt uncle and sourpuss aunt find out who’s really beneath those ever-changing bodices and breeches. This madcap musical farce is a delightful celebration of springtime romance.
