What is it?
Expect a swashbuckling summer in Lancaster as The Three Musketeers arrive in the unique Williamson Park this July and August, for the nation’s biggest outdoor walkabout theatre season.
Lancaster’s Edwardian Williamson Park will provide the beautiful setting for a theatrical experience where the audience follow the drama by moving from one location to another with the actors.
Audiences will join D’Artagnan as he – or should that be she? – teams up with the legendary Three Musketeers in a new adaptation of the classic novel, with a thoroughly modern twist.
Thrill as D’Artagnan takes on three duels at once, gasp as Milady weaves her evil intrigues and cheer as the Musketeers save the day!
Since 1987, Lancaster’s Dukes theatre has been entertaining generations of families during the summer with promenade shows which have attracted more than half a million people. Their 2016 production of The Hobbit won the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.
Central to each production is the impressive Ashton Memorial, once described as the grandest monument in England, from which audiences can enjoy the stunning sunset views across Morecambe Bay during the show and take in a picnic too.
This summer, The Three Musketeers will draw people from far and wide to enjoy this outdoor theatre experience with a difference. The production runs until 18th August (excluding some Sundays and Mondays) and is recommended for all adventurers aged 5 years and over.
