The stage adaptation of a classic French adventure novel is set for an open-air performance at The Commandery.

Alexandre Dumas' tale of The Three Musketeers will be presented by the Worcester Repertory Company in the venue's gardens.

Audiences from the company's acclaimed production, The Importance Of Being Earnest, last year were glowing in their reviews.

One said: "I've never watched outdoor theatre before but sitting outside with a picnic and prosecco really is an excellent way to watch theatre."

Another attendee said it was "so professional and slick", adding: "I highly recommend seeing it while you can, a great play in a great setting."

This revamped version of the classic novel has been adapted by Paul Milton, creative director at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham.

Performances are running from Wednesday 10 to Sunday, July 21.

Alexandra Whitworth and Charlie Ryan, who previously appeared in the Worcester Rep’s production of ‘Pride and (Quite A Lot Of) Prejudice’ at The Commandery in 2019, will lead the production.

Also set to star in the show is Nathan Blyth, last seen as Silly Billy in ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, Rob Holman, who played Friar Laurence in ‘Romeo and Juliet’, and Hollie Christian-Brookes from ‘The Three Little Pigs’.

Directed by Owen Harper, the actors will play a total of 17 different characters.

Alongside D'Artagnan and the infamous Musketeers, roles will also include the wicked Lady de Winter, the Duke of Buckingham and the ill-renowned Cardinal Richelieu.
