'Three Musketeers'

Students practice their sword play for the production of "The Three Musketeers," being performed April 26-May 4.

Chaska High School presents “The Three Musketeers,” from April 26-May 4.

The new adaptation of the 17th century classic is by Tony Award winning playwright Ken Ludwig, featuring contemporary humor, slapstick, action and plenty of sword fighting, according to a press release.

“This timeless tale has something for everyone in the family — adventure, romance, following your dreams, and above all, doing the right thing,” states the press release.

“D’Artagnan, a young rural Frenchman dreams of going to Paris to become a Musketeer to help defend the king. Along with his sister, Sabine, D’Artagnan finds himself in one jam after another while earning the respect and friendship of the Musketeers. The plot thickens as this daring foursome thwart the evil plan of a corrupt cardinal and his bumbling sidekick, outwit the ruthless Milady, defend the integrity of the crown (despite the best efforts of the king and queen), and rescue priceless jewels to save the day.”

The show is directed by Randy Herget, alongside fight choreographer Meredith Kind.

Tickets are on sale now at www.district112.booktix.com for upcoming show dates of April 26, 27, 28 and May 2, 3 and 4. Tickets will also be available at the door. Tickets are $10 for adults; student and senior tickets are $8.

All performances are held at Chaska High School, 545 Pioneer Trail, Chaska.
