HORNCASTLE Theatre Company is presenting The Three Musketeers – the panto in the new year at the Lion Theatre.
The young D’Artagnan sets out for Paris to join Athos, Porthos and Aramis, the Three Musketeers, in the fight against the evil Cardinal Richelieu and the Baron de Roquefort.
The Queen of France has accidentally given away her necklace, a gift from the king, to a foreign ambassador – can the Musketeers get it back, and avert war with England?
A rip-roaring pantomime with all the trimmings (dame, panto horse, and gallons of boos) from award-winning in-house writer Chris Liversidge and performed with gusto by the company.
Choreography and music are by Nancy Byrne and Chris Hinkins.
The panto is on from January 25-28 and February 1-4, 7.30pm. There are also 3pm matinees on January 28 and February 4.
