Greenfields Theatre Company 2012 was exceptionally pleased to bring to life, for the pleasure of several packed houses, Alexandre Dumas’ timeless adventure classic The Three Musketeers.
Set in the luxuriously royal France of the 17th century, this swashbuckling performance certainly buckled a lot of swash, with duels and devil-may-care do-gooding taking place between Paris and London as the Three Musketeers and their companion, the noble young farm boy D’Artagnan, attempted to foil the plots of the evil Cardinal Richelieu and the devilish Milady De Winter.
Action, excitement, romance and the crème de la crème of sword battles paraded across the stage as the fearless heroes journeyed from Gascony to Paris on their perilous quest to protect the Queen of France.
As usual the pupils were responsible for making costumes and props, creating the music and animation, selling tickets and running backstage.
Directed once again by the wonderful Madame Bird and using Ken Ludwig’s script, this proved to be the most exciting play of the season. All for one, and one for all!
