Edison Stagelight Players to Perform The Three Musketeers

The Edison Stagelight Players will perform the bard’s comedy The Three Musketeers as a spring theater production. The performances, held in the Robinson Theater at Edison Community College’s Piqua campus, will begin Friday, April 4 and continue through Sunday, April 13.

On his journey to Paris in 1625, D’Artagnan is determined to join the ranks of the musketeers responsible for protecting King Louis XIII. He soon finds himself fighting alongside Athos, Porthos, and Aramis: the Three Musketeers who live by the motto, “all for one, one for all.” The four of them outwit, duel, unmask, and intricate love affairs in this classic tale that’s sure to entertain.

“The Three Musketeers has everything–comedy, romance, action, adventure, and drama,” said Matt Beisner, director and adjunct faculty member. “Most importantly, it has awesome sword fights.”

Kevin Grogean, who has been involved with the Stagelight Players for 15 years, brings years of fencing and sword fighting experience to the table, helping the Stagelight Players choreograph some exciting and believable fights.

Featuring hilarious characters, sword fighting at every turn, and splendid costumes designed by Edison faculty member William Loudermilk, this show is sure to please audiences of all ages.

Beisner has been impressed with the direction and progress that Edison’s theater program has made over the years.

“Things are definitely headed in the right direction. There are lots of wonderful people at Edison who want to see the theatre program succeed, from teachers to the administrative staff,” he said. “I’ve made it a personal goal to bring such a high level of quality to our productions, that when people think of great theatre, they think of Edison.”

Shows will run Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. Additional shows will be held Friday, April 11 and Saturday, April 12 at 7:30 p.m. with a closing matinee on Sunday, April 13 at 3:00 p.m.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for students and $3 for seniors and can be purchased at the door. Children under 12 are free. For further information regarding the upcoming production contact Matt Beisner at
