“All for one, one for all!” as the Three Musketeers leap into action at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. The show brings an impressive cast to stage as the audience is sent back in time of King Louis XIII in France. The performance brought thrilling sword fighting, romance, and laughter to the stage as the audience was blown away by the talent of these creative actors.
The Three Musketeers runs from July 12 - August 6 as part of the 26th season of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, located on the campus of DeSales University. Director Rick Sordelet proves once again that he is a master at transforming the stage into a magical land of courage, danger, and love.
The characters Athos, Aramis, and Porthos bring a great chemistry as they defend King Louis XIII and make new friends D’aragnan and Sabine. D’aragnan along with his sister, Sabine, travel to Paris looking for adventure. After accidentally saving Constance from the evil Cardinal Richelieu’s guards, D’aragnan finds himself in more trouble than he had planned. With the help of his new friends the Three Musketeers, they prove good overcomes evil as they bring to light the conspiracy that is forming behind the king's back.
Enjoyable for all ages, The Three Musketeers is a performance for the books. For more information regarding available show times, visit PAShakespeare.org.
