Norton High School Drama Department presents comedic twist on the ‘Three Musketeers’

Norton students combine action and comedy in the NHS Drama Department production of “The Thrilling Tale of the Three Musketeers” on Nov. 4, 5, and 6 at 7 p.m.

Norton teacher Tricia Pletcher directs Richard Gremel’s comedic adaptation of the classic tale by Alexander Dumas. In this comedic take on a classic tale, Queen Anne has forced her son Fredrick to get married, but when the Duke of Buckingham and his two henchmen can’t find a girl willing to marry Fredrick, the Duke forces his daughter to the altar. However, she is the love of D’Artagnan, the lowly royal tailor who longs to be a hero. It is up to D’Artagnan to find two others to help him stop the queen and free his love. Along with some crazy characters and a few outlandish commercial breaks, this show is a family-friendly fun time. This show is not the classic tale of the Three Musketeers, but if you are looking for a night full of laughs, adventure, love and thrills, this show is perfect for you!

Students trained with professional fight choreographers to learn safe stage combat, and they have been working to choreograph their own combat sequences.

A complimentary performance with free breakfast, sponsored by the Norton Women’s Club, is offered on Friday, Nov. 5 at 9 a.m. Please call Norton High School at 330-825-7300 for reservations for the complimentary breakfast show. Tickets for evening performances are available online at www.nhspac.ludus.com and at the door, $8 for premium reserved seats, $6 general admission. For more information, call Tricia Pletcher 330-825-7300.
