Les Trois Mousquetaires (The Three Musketeers)
Monday 08 May 2017
On Tuesday 25th April, Freshwater Theatre Productions visited INA to put on a version of Les Trois Mousquetaires (The Three Musketeers). The show covered the introductory chapter of Alexander Dumas’ famous novel and introduced every student at INA to 17th century Paris and d’Artagnan’s quest to become the fourth Musketeer.
Students played the roles of the King Louis XIII, The Cardinal, d’Artagnan’s father, his trusty horse, Monsieur Détreville (the head of the Musketeers), the cardinal’s guards and the three musketeers themselves – Athos, Porthos and Aramis. Audience participation was essential in making the performance a success and our INA students did an excellent job of providing the sound effects, rapping, singing and being excellent Parisians supporting d’Artagnan on his quest - every student speaking French throughout the performance.
