The Sulphur Springs High School Wildcat Theatre department will be presenting “The Three Musketeers,” based on playwright Ken Ludwig’s adaption of Alexandre Dumas’ novel.
Students have been working on the timeless swashbuckling tale of heroism, treachery, close escapes and honor.
The story begins with d’Artagnan, played by junior Chase Berry, taking his tomboy sister Sabine, portrayed by Rorie Young, to a convent school in Paris as he begins his in search for adventure. She poses as d’Artagnan’s young male servant and is swept into d’Artagnan’s escapades.
In Paris, d’Artagnan meets Musketeers Athos (freshman Ben Braddy), Porthos (junior Reagan Kesting) and Aramis (senior Johnathan Johnson). D’Artagnan runs in opposition of the dangerous Cardinal Richelieu, played by senior Hagen Hunt, while aiding the Musketeers as they defend the French queen’s honor. Sophomore Hannah Shultz portrays the Queen of France.
The sibling pair also runs afoul of the deadly Countess de Winter or “Milady.” Junior Rachel Bramlett portrays the infamous revenge-seeking woman.
The stage crew is led by senior crew member Tre Ransom and senior stage manager Cody Queen with SSISD staff members Loren Carter as assistant tech director, Desi Pharis as technical director and Lesha Woodard, director.
The play will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 10, with a 2 p.m. matinee planned for Sunday, Nov. 11, at Sulphur Springs High School Auditorium, located at the back of the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center. Tickets are available for $10 for adults and $5 for students from any cast or crew member or may be purchased at the door. Veterans will receive free admission on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11.
