The inimitable Barbershopera comedy quartet make a welcome return to Plymouth's Drum theatre next week... and this time they have swords.

Reinventing Alexandre Dumas's classic adventure story The Three Musketeers with some fresh four-part harmonies, the three guys and a girl sing you through the epic adventure of d'Artagnan and company.

The story goes like this. With her village under threat of destruction at the hands of the villainous Cardinal Richtea, young Nicole d'Artagnan must dress up as a man and head to Paris in hope of joining the famous King's Musketeers.

But murky happenings plague the progress of this heroine and her new-found trio of friends as they battle corruption, femme fatales and the cultural confusions brought on by a quest to England.

Barbershopera have charmed audiences across the UK and internationally since 2007 with their award-winning work. Their shows always retain the original, simple premise: three guys and a girl singing a fully formed a cappella musical.

Barbershopera – The Three Musketeers is at the Drum, Plymouth for evening shows from Wednesday, December 5 to Sunday, December 23. Box office: 01752 267222 or visit www.theatreroyal.com/barbershopera.
