It’s all for one, and two for all, when The Musketeers arrive in Lancashire this coming weekend.
Off the Ground Theatre company will join the fray twice in the Red Rose County, first at Lancaster Castle on Sunday (July 26) and then a week later at Hoghton Tower (August 2).
The cast have sharpened their rapiers and honed their lunges in preparation for a touring production of The Musketeers which promises much.
There will be overwhelming amounts of swash and buckle as the, now slightly older, heroes with a little help from Athos’ son and D’Artagnan’s daughter, charm women (and some men), quaff wine and fight off Spanish and Dutch spies – all in the name of protecting France.
This new story, written especially for the company by Daniel Cambridge, brings the Musketeers back together after they first met 20 years previously.
And this time, the whole future of Europe is at stake as mysterious powers aim to topple the most powerful people throughout the continent.
With full-blooded and fanciful fighting, live music and a 15-strong cast, this promises to be a real summer spectacle.
Off the Ground began almost 20 years ago and have since produced more than a hundred shows, featuring young talent from across the region.
