The Three Musketeers - Rosemary Branch Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING their recent sold-out, critically acclaimed run of The Pirates of Penzance, Charles Court Opera are presenting The Three Musketeers, their 6th ‘boutique’ pantomime at the Rosemary Branch Theatre.

This new version, with book and lyrics by John Savournin and David Eaton, runs from Friday, December 7, 2012 to Wednesday, January 9, 2013.

Set apart by remarkably high musical standards, CCO’s musical pantomimes have become a legendary part of North London’s Christmas.

And, according to the press release, this year promises to be a tour de force of music, jokes and utter silliness, with writer/director John Savournin appearing as the Mother Superior alongside other favourite characters, including d’Artagnan, Milady de Winter, Cardinal Richelieu, the three musketeers and a novice in a nunnery…

With performances ranging from adults-only nights to children’s matinees, the show is suitable for all ages and interests.

The Three Musketeers is directed by John Savournin, with musical direction by David Eaton, set design by James Perkins, costume design by Mia Wallden and lighting by Nic Holdridge.
