Not the Candy Bar

The First Stage Theatre Company's production of "The Three Musketeers" takes to the stage this weekend at the Renaissance Theater (the old Huntington High School), and here are a few interesting bits o' information about that show:

- The show is the first in the history of First Stage to feature swordfights using actual swords.

- The Director of the show is Travis McElroy, and the Assistant Director is Justin Minsker - both former actors in First Stage shows.

- It's the second consecutive show from First Stage to be set in France (last spring's "Les Miserables: School Edtion" was the other).

- It's a non-musical, but features instrumental accompaniment written by cast member Clint Wilson.

The show only runs this weekend, so mark your calendars!
