BELLEVUE, WASH. — With fast-paced action, witty dialog, dazzling, true-to-life swordplay and a lively, student-composed score, Bellevue College’s production of The Three Musketeers is certain to be the don’t-miss show of the season.
The production hits the stage March 9 for four consecutive nights at the college’s Carlson Theatre.

- Abbie Grimstad, of Snoqualmie, as Constance, the Queen’s Lady in Waiting
- Lisa Franke, of Redmond, as Sabine, a feisty, 17-year- old swordswoman
An original score by Bellevue College student Sara Richardson, of Kirkland, will be performed live on stage during the play, highlighting the often intense action.
Set in the 17th century, The Three Musketeers portrays the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan, who leaves home to join the Musketeers of the Guard, a fighting company of French royal household.
