“The Three Musketeers” Kicks off Theatre Siena Season

Show Runs Oct. 2-4 in Francoeur Theater

Theatre Siena at Siena Heights University kicks off its 2008-09 season with the classic “The Three Musketeers.” The show runs from Oct. 2-4 in Francoeur Theater on the SHU campus. Curtain times are at 8 p.m. each evening.


Adapted by Peter Raby from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, “The Three Musketeers” is the story of the renowned adventures of D’Artagnan and his three fellow musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis. They fight for king and country – with frequent detours involving wine, women and song – and of course, fighting. It’s all here – the devious trickery of Cardinal Richelieu and Milady de Winter; the sad plight of the beauteous Constance Bonacieux; attempted assassinations; plots and counterplots; and the final triumph of virtue over the forces of evil.


“The Three Musketeers” is directed by SHU Professor of Theatre and Speech Communications Mark DiPietro, who will also serve as the production’s fight choreographer and make a special appearance. D'Artagnan will be played by Jonathan Stelzer of Temperance, Mich., with Stephen Smith (Escanaba, Mich.) playing Porthos, Ramon Sherrell (Roseville, Mich.) Aramis and Andrew Dunn (Toledo, Ohio) Athos. The full cast list is listed below.


Tickets are $8 for general admission, $6 for students and members of the Siena community.


The rest of the 2008 Theatre Siena schedule includes “Hocus Pocus,” Nov. 6-8, and “A Christmas Celebration,” Dec. 5-6.
