Set in the 1950s and performed in the enchanting surroundings of Tauranga's Historic Village, this fast-paced, hilarious production is a love letter to the romantic comedies of that era, complete with a specially curated orchestral score.
The King of Navarre and his three friends have made a vow that they will study for 3 years, only eat one meal a day, sleep only 3 hours a night, and not see any women during that time. So confident that they will succeed, they wager that any man who breaks the vow will "stand in attainder to eternal shame". Their plan comes unstuck, however, when the beautiful princess of France arrives with her 3 equally beautiful ladies-in-waiting to settle a land dispute! Hilarity ensues as the men of Spain fall madly in love with the women of France, but desperately try to hide it from each other lest they break the vow.
