The Three Musketeers


David Nixon

December 2008


Alexander Dumas’s rip-roaring yarn of derring-do, palace intrigue, and slushy amour, seamlessly transplanted to Pantoland by Richard Lloyd.

The story of a young boy who wants to see the world and fight baddies! Here we find those famous swashbucklers, Porthos, Aramis, Athos and D’Artagnan, effortlessly recast as a bevy of roistering, thigh slapping lovelies – Principal Garcons par excellence. Throw in the despicable Cardinal Richeleeugh, his debauched sidekick Le Chevalier Du Lobster Roquefort, a clutch of other eminently hissable villains, plus a giant pantomime snail, and you have all the ingredients for un panteau cordon bleu. This show gives the ladies a fair crack of the whip. And the chance to show they can roister and swashbuckle with the best of them!
