The Augustana Teaching Museum of Art will open the exhibition "Världen är Liten: the World is Small. Modern Swedish and Swedish American Works" with a reception Nov. 16.
The Three Musketeers, Jan. 25-Feb. 3
This adaptation by Ken Ludwig is based on the adventure classic by French author Alexandre Dumas. Set in 1625, it recounts the adventures of young d'Artagnan after he leaves home to travel to Paris to join the Musketeers of the Guard. He befriends the three most formidable musketeers of the age and gets involved in affairs of the state and court.
Dumas frequently works into the plot various injustices, abuses, and absurdities of the ancien régime, giving the novel an additional political aspect at a time when the debate in France between republicans and monarchists was still fierce.
Jeff Coussens, Augustana professor of theatre, will direct.
Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Jan 25-26 and Feb. 1-2; and at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 27 and Feb. 3.
Tickets are $15; or $12 for seniors 60+ and Augustana staff; $10 for students and children; free for Augustana students.
