Barbershopera takes new show to Brewery
AWARD-winning Barbershopera are back on the road with their fourth a cappella comedy musical The Three Musketeers.
Reinventing Alexandre Dumas' much-loved novel, the company’s new show is a fast-paced ride through the classic swashbuckling adventure, retold through the medium of four-part a cappella harmony, and plays Kendal’s Brewery Arts Centre on Thursday, October 17 (8pm). The story tells of the headstrong and feisty Nicole d’Artagnan, who heads to Paris to illicit the help of the King’s Musketeers to lift the jam-roly-poly embargo on her sleepy village. The three ‘heroes’ she encounters are not what she was expecting and together they must be whipped into shape to defeat the villainous Cardinal Rich Tea in time for the King’s Birthday Ball.
Equipped with their unique and hilarious storytelling style, Barbershopera takes on the epic story of the three famed swordsmen with a cast of four talented singers. Highly lauded for their innovative lyrics, wildly delightful storytelling and phenomenal close harmony singing, audiences are apparently left cheering, holding their sides with laughter and calling out for more.
Prepare to battle corruption, femme fatales and some seriously murky undertakings in this rambunctious romp for all the family.
Barbershopera is a comedy barbershop quartet, which since 2007 has been charming audiences across the UK and overseas.
Laura Darton - who plays Nicole D'Artagnan/Cardinal Rich Tea - has recently graduated from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and makes her professional debut in new show.
Pete Sorel Cameron (King Louis of France/Aramis) joined Barbershopera in 2009 and has been performing with the outfit across the UK for four years, most notably at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Harry Stone (Porthos/Milady) was recently seen as Mickey in Payback The Musical, at London’s Riverside Studios and Sebastian in The Tempest for Shakespeare 4 Kidz.
And last, but not least, Russell Walker (Athos/Duke of Buckingham) will join the cast of Wicked after his tuneful time with Barbershopera. His theatre credits include Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Saturday Night Fever and Mamma Mia! at the Prince Edward Theatre.
Barbershopera was created by Rob Castell and Tom Sadler, along with director Sarah Tipple. The Three Musketeers is written by Tom Sadler with musical arrangements by Rob Castell, and directed by Sarah Tipple.
