Intrigue. Love. Tragedy. Croissants.
Join The 3 Musketeers and their young friend D’Artagnan 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 and Angelique Malcolm (winner of the Performing Arts WA Award for a significant contribution to professional theatre).
Eleven performances only. Bookings highly recommended.
