THREE Musketeer mayhem is set to come to The Roses in Tewkesbury this May, with slapstick and swash-buckle for all ages.

And that includes the seventeenth century.

A spokesman said: "Fresh from Justin’s House and Spot Bots, join the CBeebies’ favourites as they swashbuckle their way across the UK in a hilarious new slapstick adventure of chivalry, swordplay and suddenly falling over.

"The seventeenth century has never been so silly."

The spokesman added: "Chaos, mayhem and stupidity reign supreme as children’s comedy trio the Three Half Pints swish their swords, buff their boots and flourish their feathers in their most ridiculous adventure yet.

"Will they defeat the dastardly evil-doers? Will they save the damsel in distress? Will they actually read the book before writing the show?"

The Three Half Pints are Robin Hatcher (Ernie), Richard Franklin (Dick) and Callum Donnelly (Derek,).

They met at university in 2010 where they "bonded over a shared love of slapstick comedy".

The spokesman added: "Their slapstick comedy and sketch writing skills lead to them being cast last year as green-faced aliens, the Odd Bods, in CBeebies’ new show Spot Bots. They’ve also been seen recently in the highly popular Justin’s House and their previous tour, Bad Guys, enthralled and delighted audiences at almost a hundred venues across the UK from Llandudno to St Andrews."

And now it's the turn of The Roses at Tewkesbury.

The date for the diary is Tuesday, May 30, at 2.30pm.
