Join D'artagnan as he (literally) bumps into Porthos, Athos and Aramis, three brave and swarve musketeers working to protect the King of France. Sword wielding, daring fights, romance and fast-paced adventure await this troublesome foursome as they set-about defending the honour of the Queen against the conniving Cardinal Richy-poo, I mean Lindy-Loo, I'm sorry Richelieu...let's just call him the Cardinal. Will the bold royal servants retrieve the Queen's precious diamond necklace in time for her to ware it at the ball, what evil will they have to overcome to get it back and will D'Artangnan make three into four musketeers?
Tread the Boards very own Olivia Holmes adapts the classic story for a family audience, filled with fun, laughter and a little silliness this summer!
