"The Three Musketeers is one of the most rousing adventures of all time. There are legendary heroes and conniving villains all tumbling down a path of intrigue, romance, danger and merriment," director Tom Orth writes.

"Every audience will find itself on the edge of their seats as evil 'Milady' will stop at nothing to maintain her position of influence. Her misfortune is challenging a young courageous D'Artagnan who will stop at nothing to join The Musketeers of 1620's France and help save the kingdom.

"The playwright, Ken Ludwig, best describes his writing as a recreation for the stage of 'the single greatest family of swashbuckling characters ever put in a single story!'"
