ISU School of Performing Arts Presents: “Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers”

October 26, 2023

Idaho State University’s School of Performing Arts will present its second show of the season: “Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers” on Dec. 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. in the Beverly B. Bistline Theatre in the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center. 

"Ken Ludwig's The Three Musketeers" is a swashbuckling adventure play adapted from Alexandre Dumas' classic novel of the same name. Set in 17th-century France, the story follows the young and courageous d'Artagnan who dreams of becoming a musketeer and serving his king. As he arrives in Paris, he encounters the legendary trio of Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, who are known as the Three Musketeers. Together, they embark on a thrilling journey to defend the honor of the queen and protect the crown against the machinations of the powerful Cardinal Richelieu and his cunning agent, Milady de Winter. Filled with romance, loyalty, sword fights, and political intrigue, Ludwig's adaptation captures the essence of the beloved tale, bringing it to life on the stage with humor, drama, and breathtaking action.

“Ken Ludwig’s The Three Musketeers” is a classic tale of heroes fighting for justice, freedom and equality. This Idaho State production is an hilarious, action-packed, swashbuckling, adventure that will be an exciting night of entertainment for the entire family. All for one, and one for all!,” said Show Director and new faculty member Jef Petersen.

Idaho State Theatre will again offer concessions for purchase at select performances. Refreshments for “The Three Musketeers” will be available before the show, and during intermission on December 1 and 9 and also after the show for the return of the "Afterglow Reception" on opening night, December 1. Selections include beer, wine, soft drinks, and seasonal snacks.
