THE Dukes' new adaptation of The Three Musketeers will run in Lancaster’s picturesque Williamson Park until mid-August.

Director Sarah Punshon said: "The Dukes park show is an extraordinary tradition: more than 30 years of making memories for generations of families. I'm excited to be able to put my own twist on such a unique format.”

This new adaptation of the classic swashbuckling story has been written by the Olivier Award nominated playwright Hattie Naylor and will feature Lucy Parkinson (aka renowned drag king, LoUis CYfer) as D’Artagnan.

The audience will join D’Artagnan as she teams up with the legendary Three Musketeers in a death-defying quest to save the life of a loving queen.

As they move from one fantastic location to another with the actors, the audience will follow in the footsteps of more than half a million people who The Dukes have been entertaining outdoors since 1987.

In 2016, their walkabout version of The Hobbit won the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.

The Three Musketeers will run in Williamson Park, Lancaster, until Saturday August 18.
