If you want to catch a showing of Arcadia High School's production of "The Three Musketeers," you should purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Every show will sell out, Theater Department spokesperson Bill Clark said.
The production runs Nov. 13 -17 with five shows. Doors open each evening at 6:30 p.m., while the show starts at 7 p.m.
The play tells the tale of d'Artagnan, a young Frenchman from Gascony who travels to Paris in search of adventure, accompanied by his sister, Sabine. Upon his arrival in Paris, d'Artagnan encounters the greatest heroes of the day, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, The Three Musketeers. After challenging them to duels, d'Artagnan joins forces with the trio to defend the honor of the Queen of France.
"It's incredibly entertaining," Clark said. "We have actual sword fights. It's a fantastic cast and crew, really like professionals."
"The Three Musketeers" marks The Little Theater's swan song. The spring musical, "The Drowsy Chaperone," will open at the new $25 million Performing Arts Center.
