1 evil Cardinal, 2 comedic Narrators and 3 jolly MUSKETEERS = an evening of fun and frolics for all the family!
On Wednesday 5th, Thursday 6th and Friday 7th June 2013, the Saint Benedict Staff Players will proudly present their version of Alexandre Dumas’ classic tale ‘The Three Musketeers’ (adapted by Alexandra Slater).
A long time ago, in a country far, far(ish) away… When young, idealistic D’Artagnon travels to Paris, determined to become a musketeer, he little realises how complicated his life is about to become! As scheming Cardinal Richelieu, arrogant Comte de Rochefort and vain Milady de Winter conspire to undermine Queen Anne and her lover, the Duke of Buckingham, D’Artagnon quickly realises that it’ll require more than just his considerable charms and his good servant Planchet to ensure victory against the terrible trio. He’s going to need… the Three Musketeers!
With songs, jokes and a LOT of ‘Star Wars’ references, this is a version of the story unlike any you’re likely to have seen before!
