The 3 Musketeers

MUSKETEERS-8338-Copy.jpg

This new adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ novel brings the classic characters to the stage in a fast-paced romp through 17th-century France – a rip-roaring, gender-bending, breakneck tale of passion and intrigue, comedy and tragedy ... with splashes of music.

Embracing the classic novel’s themes of loyalty and camaraderie, 'The 3 Musketeers' also delves deep into the dark side of one of its ostensible heroes, to bring you the ultimate swashbuckling adventure ... with an edge.

Director Natasha Broadstock ('Anno Zombie', 'demens', 'Do You Fear The Dark?') has cast this production gender-blind. Pulling together an intriguing ensemble of eight actors, she cast the best person for each role – on the basis that gender is a facet of character, and that playing a gender is part of playing a role. Ultimately, only three actors were cast as characters who match their own gender.

'The 3 Musketeers' features a cast of Melbourne independent theatre’s brightest lights, including Green Room nominee Scott Jackson, Angelique Malcolm (winner of the Performing Arts WA Award for a significant contribution to professional theatre) and international actor, singer and dancer Joti Gore.

With only eleven performances, bookings are highly recommended.
