The Cardinal wants Jacques famous magical perfume to disgrace the Queen and ruin all chances of a peace treaty between France and their rival England.
Can D'Artagnan, the Musketeers and a gang of street urchins rescue Jacques? Will they defeat the Cardinal, cheesy Roquefort and his Red Guards, and the mysterious Milady DeWinter? You find out the answers to these questions and more in En Garde! The Panto Adventures of the Three Musketeers.
In January 2020, Suburban Legend presents En Garde! The Panto Adventures of the Three Musketeers: a family comedy in the British Pantomime tradition written, directed, produced by and starring talented local residents, with profits benefiting local charities. Get ready to boo the villains, cheer for the heroes, shout Its behind you! and join in the fun! Sing along to some catchy silly songs and be ready to laugh at some of the best worst jokes ever told in Maplewood.
En Garde! is the eighth British Pantomime in seven years at the The Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts. I can't imagine Maplewood without a panto now, Suburban Legend producer Kathleen Ash-Milby told us.
Formed by Ridley and Chrissy McIntyre in 2014, Suburban Legend welcomes everyone. The company includes a mix of amateur and semi-professional performers who want to work as a collaborative team to create good fun for everyone, young and old, cast and crew and audience.
"Every year we come across people who have never heard of British Pantomime, or who upon hearing the term, immediately think of French men fighting their way out of imaginary boxes," says writer and director, Ridley McIntyre. Well, this year we actually do have that, but its also so much more! Panto, as it is affectionately known, is actually a boisterous, family-friendly show filled with slapstick, witty dialogue and a few wink-wink jokes for the adults. "It's the kind of show where you can bring your kids and you don't have to shush them," says writer and producer Chrissy McIntyre. "In fact it's the opposite. Be loud! We want you to be loud!"
Performances for En Garde! are at the Burgdorff Center for the Performing Arts in Maplewood on January 4, 10-12 and 17-!9 2020. Door Admissions are Adult $25, Child $20.
