"The Three Musketeers"
Heaton Park, Manchester
July - August 2004
The Three Musketeers was an outdoor spectacle surrounding the audience in an epic adventure of high drama, heart stopping sword fights, horses and stunts.
The story followed the exploits of Aramis, Athos, Porthos and the dashing D’Artagnan, as they rode to the gallant defence of the Queen of France and fought against the evil Cardinal Richelieu with his schemes to exert power and influence over King Louis XIII. This fast moving promenade production made superb use of Heaton Park in North Manchester following an extensive restoration programme. The Three Musketeers was our 10th Anniversary production and provided a unique opportunity to enjoy outdoor theatre at its very best in a truly spectacular setting.
