This adaptation by Ken Ludwig (Moon Over Buffalo, Baskerville - A Sherlock Holmes Mystery) is based on the timeless swashbuckler written by Alexandre Dumas, a tale of heroism, treachery, close escapes, and above all, honour. The story is set in 1625 and follows D'Artagnan as he sets off for Paris in search of adventure. His sister, Sabine, is sent with him to attend convent school but is quickly entangled in her brother's adventures. Soon after reaching Paris they encounter the greatest heroes of the day, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, the famous musketeers, and they join forces to defend the honour of the Queen of France. In so doing D'Artagnan finds himself in opposition to the most dangerous man in Europe, the Cardinal Richelieu, and the even more deadly and infamous Countess de Winter,
known as Milady...
The Lieder cast have been sharpening their swords and pointing their toes in preparation for the opening night, with the help of guest fight director Braddon Giles, who has provided essential advice and training in fencing and stage combat.
Our fearless cast features Harrison Treble as the young adventurer D'Artagnan, accompanied by Hannah Cotton playing his sister Sabine. The Three Musketeers are played by Joshua Waters, Martin Sanders, and Andy Picker, while the villainous cardinal is played by Rod McConnell and evil Milady by Erin Williams. Ryan Paranthoiene as King Louis XIII and Marianne Powles as Queen Anne are the tenuous rulers of France, supported by Blake Selmes, Courtney McKenzie, Evan Goad, Ben Pik and Jock McLean, all dealing with passionate love scenes, sharp swords, and fast costume changes.

Beautiful masks have been created by Margaret Bourke, and classic costumes have been dusted off and made new by Helena Bozzetto, Pauline J Mullen, and Christine Bentley.
 All of this is being managed by a fearless stage crew led by Michelle Treble, Kathy Campbell, and Kate Easlea.
With plenty of romance, many sword fights, and just as many deaths, this show is not to be missed, and is a great way to open the Lieder's 2019 season of mainstage productions.

Arti Grabowski

Those locals who had the pleasure to meet Arti, attend his workshops, or see his incredible show Dreamliner at the Lieder Theatre will never forget our most recent visiting artist from Poland, his passion for theatre, his talent and kindness, and his wonderful knowledge of Absurdism and contemporary theatre. 

Arti shared his time and expertise with us, and in doing so, forged a connection that will last well into the future. His visit was a direct result of the wonderful times we had with Teatr Brama last October at our Periphery Festival (2019 Australia Day award recipient), and was inspired by a Veolia Mulwaree Trust funded visit by Chrisjohn Hancock to Poland earlier last year.

Thank you to everyone involved in supporting Arti's visit and to those who helped organise his accommodation and travel. A big call out to our friend Laszlo in Armidale who also invited Arti to spend some time there.
We'll see you soon Arti, for sure!

Congratulations to everyone involved, especially the back stage team, and of course the wild and dangerous looking cast! Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful fire play.

Lieder Theatre Members are invited to attend the

Goulburn Liedertafel 125th AGM

Sunday 24th March at 4pm

All memberships are due at this time. New members very welcome.
From the President
Welcome to a new year at the Lieder - it's already begun, to be honest, with the darkly comic The Bleeding Tree rehearsed reading earlier this month. And a very good start it was too.
Now we all look forward to the clashing of swords and bright comedy of The Three Musketeers as re-imagined by Ken Ludwig - whose Moon Over Buffalo and Baskerville have already been thoroughly enjoyed by Lieder patrons.
It will also be a fresh new year in the Lieder's management, as I shall be standing down as President at our upcoming AGM after six years in the role. The AGM on Sunday 24th March at 4pm will elect a new committee (or Board of Management, as it is formally called), and I urge anyone at all interested in the Lieder and all it does to consider nominating for it. The Committee meets monthly at a day and time that suits all members, and it elects all office bearers, including the President. Anyone interested in nominating for the committee should do so by the 17th of March. Contact the Lieder Theatre by email or phone (02) 4821 5066 or let Chrisjohn or any current committee member know. Rest assured, your nomination will be very welcome.
See you at The Three Musketeers and/or the AGM.
Jennifer Lamb.
