Can D'Artagnan join the musketeers in new comedy adventure
All for one and one for all! The gallant tale of Athos, Porthos and Aramis has been told countless times since first written as a novel by French author Alexandre Dumas in the 19th century. But the historical adventure that is The Three Musketeers has been given a refreshing comedic look in this new production by award-winning theatre company Le Navet Bete. Dumas's original story, set between 1625 and 1628, recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan who travels to Paris to join the Musketeers of the Guard, where he befriends Athos, Porthos and Aramis. Le Navet Betel, creators of previous smash-hit shows such as Dracula: The Bloody Truth and Dick Tracy, have produced a new comedy adventure based on the original novel which visits the Lichfield Garrick theatre in Staffordshire on Friday 11th October and Saturday 12th October as part of a national tour.
This new show promises to have audiences rolling with laughter from here to the French countryside. Theatre-lovers are invited to watch as hot-headed D'Artagnan, armed only with a baguette and his questionable steed, sets out from home with the aim of becoming a Musketeer. But will things go to plan? Le Navet Bete's production of The Three Musketeers features just four actors who, together, somehow play more than 30 characters. It promises to be their most hilariously chaotic adventure yet! Supported by a top notch team including long-time co-conspirator and funnyman director John Nicholson, internationally renowned choreographer Lea Anderson, and critically acclaimed set designer Ti Green, this is sure to be the company's biggest and most riotous show to date.
