Sword fights, duels, and spies! Everyone loves a good adventure story, and THE THREE MUSKETEERS is one of the favorites of all time. In this Radio Theatre adaptation, the St. Charles Players heighten the action and drama of the story, using a full cast of characters in a live-action format while the narrator moves the story from scene to scene, filling in the background information. The cast does a wonderful job portraying the characters--the proud, even arrogant, D'Artagnan, the playful Porthos, the serious and proper Aramis, and Athos, loyal and trustworthy, but with secrets of his own. Milady almost purrs as the beautiful but treacherous femme fatale, and most of the supporting characters are excellent in their roles. Filled with intrigue, action, romance, and suspense, this is solid family entertainment that could whet the appetite for more classics. W.L.S.
