The open-air production at Fowlmere Village Hall will star a young D’Artagnan as he desperately attempts to rejoin fellow musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis who guard the King.

The story tracks his adventure and retells the politics of the day as the cardinal plots to overthrow the King.

Fundraiser for the hall, Rachel Collins said: “There will be a lot of tongue-in-cheek humour and slapstick for the kids to get involved in. There will also be some swashbuckling and mock sword fights and plenty of excitement and comedy. It’s a bit of fun for everybody.”

The production is being acted out by the Illyria Theatre Company who have returned to the village for a fifth year running.

The production starts next Friday, August 28, at 6.30pm for a 7.30pm start.
