Open Auditions in Salem, MA for “I Want to be a Musketeer”

Wicked Awesome Theater – I Want to be a Musketeer

Location: 24 St Peter Street, Salem, MA 01970

Audition / Call Type: Theater

I Want to Be a Musketeer is that classic tale of four of The Three Musketeers saving France from a tall, red bird. At least that’s how it reads. You see the Cardinal is trying to usurp control of the country from King Louis (The human not orangutan) and it’s up to the Musketeers to use their wits to stop him. Problem being they’ve reached their wits end and need help! Can the heroes overcome an unreliable narrator, characters not in the novel, and an actor who doesn’t show up for the show? We hope so!
