I am excited to say that me and the family will be attending a fantastic looking performance called The Three Musketeers. I will be reviewing this performance very soon.
From the website:
Country bumpkin D’Artagnan comes to the big city with a big dream: to become a Musketeer. But when he accidentally becomes embroiled in the sinister schemes of Cardinal Richelieu, it doesn’t seem likely he’ll survive long enough. Especially as this would-be Musketeer is hiding a huge secret: “he” is really a “she”…
Take a swashbuckling adventure through Lancaster’s beautiful Williamson Park this summer, as D’Artagnan teams up with the legendary Three Musketeers, Porthos, Athos and Aramis, in a death-defying quest to save the life of a loving Queen.
Inventive stagecraft, witty dialogue and energetic swordplay will bring Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel to life in a brand new adaptation with a thoroughly modern twist.
Thrill as D’Artagnan takes on three duels at once! Gasp as Milady weaves her evil intrigues! Cheer as the Musketeers save the day at the last possible moment (we hope!)
We are all rather excited!
