It's all for one and one for all this week at Garces Memorial High School. The student thespians are bringing their production of "The Three Musketeers" to the stage today and Thursday.
Led by instructor Bethany Lahammer, this play is written by Ken Ludwig based on the classic novel by Alexandre Dumas. It takes the classic romantic novel and turns it into an action-packed and entertaining performance filled to the brim with gallantry, treachery and wit. The Musketeers — mysterious Athos (Zelas Williams), boisterous Porthos (Alfred Agbayani) and charismatic Aramis (Connor Deming) — battle against the corruption of Cardinal Richelieu (Nick Oh) with the aid of an unlikely duo: d'Artagnan (James Castanares) and his man servant who wears a dress, aka his sister, Sabine (Ashley Ruiz).
Bear witness to many a heated altercation that pit the heroes against the most dangerous woman in France — the serpentine and malicious Countess de Winter (Allyson Dunlavey) — as well as the Cardinal's fierce and brutal right-hand man, Rochefort (Victor Agbayani).
Will the intrepid crusaders protect the king from the power-hungry conspiracies set to take him down? See the show, playing at 4 and 7 p.m. today or Wednesday, to find out.
