About the event
Did you know that Crediton once produced leather boots for everyone from British soldiers to Australian gold miners? Crediton Youth Theatre’s new musical delves into the murky, competitive world of the Industrial Revolution. It is the 1850s and the Crediton shoemaking trade is flourishing. Mr Elston and Mr Gimblett are both vying to be the King of Footwear, and the rivalry intensifies as orders flood in from home and abroad. Add in romantic rivalry, as the heirs to the two cobbling fortunes pursue Miss Prunella Pridehome, a beautiful Music Hall artiste, and the stage is set for a stormy showdown where only the leather-hearted will prevail. Meanwhile, Prunella’s brother is dreaming of fortune half a world away... CYT’s previous shows include Operation Belinda, Hopping Mad, and last year’s smash, Carpe Diem. Tough As Old Boots is suitable for all ages and features intrigue, comedy and a live band.
