“Musketeers” take the stage this weekend
- Published: November 3, 2016
This weekend and next, Yellow Springs High School will present the classic “The Three Musketeers” by Alexandre Dumas as its fall play.
The play will be performed Friday and Saturday, Nov. 4-5 and 11-12 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 6 and 13, at 2 p.m. All performances will be at Mills Lawn gym, and tickets are priced at $7 for students and $10 for adults.
The play is “really ambitious,” according to director Lorrie Sparrow-Knapp, and “there’s a fight in every scene,” but the fighting is stylized.
“It’s like a live comic book,” she said.
While the play features the three musketeers plus a young man, D’Artagnan, who sets out from Paris in the hopes of becoming a musketeer, the YSHS production includes a new feminist plot adaptation. In this verson, a new female character is D’Artagnan’s sister, who accompanies him to Paris and ends up saving the day.
Actors with leading parts are Jonah Trillana, Windom Mesure, Allison Bothwell, Grant Crawford and Duard Headly.
