Based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers tells the story of the young Gascon adventurer D’Artagnan, who has traveled to Paris, France during the reign of Louis XIII to try to win a place among the elite band of soldier/adventurers The King’s Musketeers.

D’Artagnan quickly comes to the attention of the nefarious Cardinal Richelieu when he foils the Cardinal’s plans to seize power by revealing the Queen’s indiscretions. With the aid of the three most famous Musketeers in all of France -- Athos, Porthos and Aramis -- D’artagnan sets out on an international adventure to stop the Cardinal, prevent war with England, and rescue a beautiful damsel in distress along the way.

D’Artagnan is played by Bluefield College Theatre freshman R.G. Netherton. Athos is played by senior Ty Tatum. Porthos is portrayed by Lyndae Barry, and Aramis is played by Aaron Sudderth. BC theatre professor Charles M. Reese plays the role of Cardinal Richelieu. The Cardinal’s henchmen, Milady DeWinter

and Rochefort are played by BC sophomore Virginia Bird and BC theatre alumna Jennifer Bohannan.

Other cast members include Tyler Hutton and Alexis Barker as King Louis XIII and Queen Anne; Heather Sharp as Constance, the queen’s confidante and D’Artagnan’s damsel in distress; Megan Moore as D’Artagnan’s manservant, Planchet; Dago Acevedo as Captain Treville, commander of the Musketeers; Daniel Griffin as Lord DeWinter; and Patrick Hilton as D’Artagnan’s father. Other roles are played by Hannah Freeman, Emily Harman, and Brittany Hatcher.
