Fall play productions at the Lone Star Theatre are known for their timeless appeal as well as their spectacular production values. Adapted from Alexandre Dumas' spirited novel by a socially conscious Peter Raby in the 1960s, the non-stop action in this play revolves around violence, love, money and politics.

Dumas wrote his novel as a daily drama for a newspaper, spicing it up when circulation flagged. The three Musketeers who love to fight for king and country -- Athos, Porthos and Aramis -- are joined at the outset by a fourth comrade, the irresistible DArtagnan. An intricate plot of romance, betrayal and political intrigue ensues, fleshed out by villains (Milady de Winter, Cardinal Richlieu) and victims (Anne of Austria, Constance Bonacieux). In the end, virtue triumphs over evil.

As with all Lone Star Theatre productions, the work is done by students under the guidance of directors J. Gary Wyatt and Lydia Miller-Wyatt. Technical theatre students work with cast and crew members to construct the set and sew the costumes, which include authentic boned corsets. The cast includes junior high and high school students.

The cast of The Three Musketeers features Harry Tork (d'Artagnan's Father, Buckingham, Musketeer, Planchet), Bryan Chafin (DeTreville, Innkeeper at Jolly Miller, Shoulder of Mutton, Red Dovecot, O'Reilly, Lord de Winter), Austen Cabler (Jussac, Musketeers Sergeant), Lane Schwager (Mme. Coquenard, Landlady at Amiens), Cameron Allen (1st Musketeer, Cardinals Guard, Stranger, Guard at Amiens, Drunken Soldier), Cameron Duggan (2nd Musketeer, Cardinals Guard, Workman, Patrick, Beggar, Drunken Soldier), Cody Montgomery (3rd Musketeer, Cardinals Guard, Workman, Ormsby, Bandit, Drunken Soldier), Patrick Shannon (4th Musketeer, Guard at Louvre/Amiens, Apprentice, Bandit, English Guard), Walker Pickens (King, Sea-Captain, Jesuit, Executioner), Paden Ross (Bonacieux, Comte de Wardes, Cure, Felton), Thomas Reeves (Musketeer, Grimaud), Connor Pickens (Coquenard), Indy Guest (Laporte), Cole Sutera (d'Artagnan), Andrew Patoski (Rochefort), Zeb Bush (Bicarat), Brooke Shedd (Milady de Winter), Patrick Byers (Porthos), Joey Pannone (Aramis), Chris Bakka (Athos), Zane Gordon-Bouzard (Cardinal Richelieu), Jenny Bond (d'Artagnan's Mother), Caitlyn Kuhs (Constance), Erin Lyon (Kitty), Annie Bond (Anne of Austria), Calen Cabler (Dona Estefania), Alyssa Johnson (Abbess).
