Blackadder meets Gilbert and Sullivan this week at Caistor as Barbershopera perform their version of The Three Musketeers.
As part of the Lincolnshire Rural Touring Programme, Barbershopera are back on stage and this time they have swords.
Reinventing Alexander Dumas’s classic story with some fresh four-part harmonies, Barbershopera’s three guys and a girl sing the epic adventure of D’Artagnan and The Three Musketeers.
With her village under threat of destruction at the hands of the villainous Cardinal Rich Tea, young Nicole D’Artagnan must dress up as a man and head to Paris in the hope of joining the famous King’s Musketeers.
But murky happenings plague the progress of our heroine and her new-found trio of friends as they battle corruption, femme fatales and the cultural confusions brought on by a quest to England.
The comedy barbershop quarter have been charming audiences across the UK and internationally with their award-winning work since 2007.
Their shows always retain the original, simple premise: three guys and a girl singing a fully formed a cappella musical, with brand new songs and innovative contemporary staging
An IARTSCO promotion, The Three Musketeers promises another joyous evening of musical comedy, with a display of silliness, performed at Caistor Yarborough Academy this Sunday, November 25, at 7.30pm.
Tickets cost £10 , which includes a free raffle, from Caistor Post Office or the box office on 01472 851159.
