The Three Musketeers Come to Busch Gardens Williamsburg In A New Action Show
Busch Gardens Williamsburg will launch the first action-adventure show of its kind at the park, marking the return of a major nighttime spectacular beginning July 1. All For One offers audiences a thrilling new take on the classic tale of The Three Musketeers!
Busch Gardens’ Royal Palace Theatre has undergone a major transformation in preparation for the new evening show. Ship masts have risen above the France village skyline, the bright blue face of the stage has become a weathered red-brick façade and pennants emblazoned with the fleur-de-lis now fly from the ramparts.
“This is the most ambitious show we have ever staged at Busch Gardens,” said Peter Dunklee, vice president of entertainment. “It’s been over a year in the making, and it’s amazing to see it finally come to life.”
Choreography has been ongoing for a few weeks now. Take a behind-the-scenes peek at the stunt rehearsals!
The production follows the Musketeers and the courageous acts of derring-do they must perform in their quest to save the queen. Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as they find out if bravery, friendship and loyalty will be enough to save the day. As an evening-only show, All For One also utilizes the night sky as part of its expansive backdrop, with special lighting and pyrotechnics adding to the drama and suspense. Stage preparations are almost complete and rehearsals are underway. Take a look at how the Royal Palace Theatre stage has transformed over the past 3 months.
Guests will see costume designs marrying the traditional look of the time period but with a modern sensibility. Designed by the talented Nicole Wee, the costumes in All For One are beautiful, practical, and able to withstand the daily action of the performers while staying true to the period that the costumes exist in. The team created pieces that speak to the individuality of each character and function as a complete story within the tale. All of these factors combined with a custom score will take the audience on an adventure they’ll never forget.
“All For One will definitely be the most action-packed show anyone has ever seen at Busch Gardens,” Dunklee said. “The coordination of the performers, the sets, the music and all of the special effects will create a truly thrilling experience”.
