Murder, adultery, religious persecution and the nature of evil: These may not be topics you want to throw at your children, but you can make exceptions in the service of exploring a classic like The Three Musketeers. Also, unlike the slew of movies made from the Alexandre Dumas classic, this version, presented by Globalstage Theatre Adventures, is a video of an often thrilling stage adaptation by the Northwest Children's Theatre in Portland, Oregon. And it offers a young actor who kids can relate to: the appealing Dana Young, as the idealistic, honor-driven d'Artagnan, who dreams of becoming the fourth Musketeer. The mission of Globalstage's founder, Lizbeth Pratt, is to film the finest in children's theater. While these videos lack the fast-paced visual candy of cinema, they provide a quality of language that many commercial films lack. In addition, the simplicity of the physical presentation suggests that this is a show viewers could put on, too.
