The Trilling Tale of the Three Musketeers

The Thrilling Tale of the Three Musketeers

By Richard Gremel

In this brand new comedic take on a classic tale, Queen Anne has forced her son Fredrick to get married, but when the Duke of Buckingham and his two henchmen can't find a girl willing to marry Fredrick, the Duke forces his daughter to the altar. However, she is the love of D'Artagnan, the lowly royal tailor who longs to be a hero. It is up to D'Artagnan to find two others to help him stop the queen and free his love. Along with some crazy characters and a few outlandish commercial breaks, this show is a huge crowd-pleaser. If you're looking for the classic tale of the Three Musketeers, this is not the play for you. But, if you are looking for a play full of laughs, adventure, love, and thrills, this show is perfect for you!

Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents.
