Featuring a dash of live music and a hefty dose of fun, The Three Musketeers and the Princess of Spain is a play about friendship, love and identity. Oh…and baby-eating monsters!

The Three Musketeers and the Princess of Spain

Paris is being terrorised by the evil Cardinal and a monstrous creature who suffers from serious mood-swings! The young sword-fighter d’Artagnan finds himself on an epic quest to save the city and a pregnant Princess, but he needs the help of the Three Musketeers. Rumour has it they’ve gone to seed, gone past their sell-by date and gone into hiding. So first of all he has to find them…

Based on the classic characters created by Alexandre Dumas, this hilarious, anarchic and utterly thrilling new production promises an unforgettable journey into enchanted forests, over lost streams and around REALLY horrible baddies, as we cheer our hero D’Artagnan and heroine Constance to a victorious end.

Suitable for ages 8+
