Monstrous Productions Present Wyrd Sisters, Cardiff

This event has finished

Screen Shot 2014-09-16 at 17.28.02
After the death of the King, of entirely “natural causes”, the Kingdom of Lancre has fallen into the clutches of the rather unhinged Lord Felmet and it really isn’t happy about it.


Something needs to be done, but interference from the witches is against the rules. Mind you, the number one rule for witches is ‘when you break the rules, break them good and hard!’

A play about a play. And about players. And three witches and ghosts and Destiny and a Fool with a jingly hat on.

 

This production follows the hugely successful Mort in early 2014. Monstrous Productions Theatre Company is going from strength to strength, raising over £5,000 for Alzhiemer’s Research UK so far. With all profit from this, their third production, also going to this great cause, come along and enjoy a great quality show whilst helping charity at the same time!


Wyrd Sisters is on at the Gate Arts Centre, Keppoch St, Cardiff from November 5th to November 8th, 2014.


Tickets are £8 or £6 concessions and available at http://7889269b08cd.fikket.com/ or email monstrousproductions2012@gmail.com

The International Discworld Convention

This event has finished

The International Discworld Convention

The Discworld Convention is a four-day celebration of Sir Terry Pratchett and his glorious astrochelonian-riding pachyderm-borne creation.

The Ankh-Morpork Grand Exhibition is also a four-day celebration of the culture, technology and industry of the great city of Ankh-Morpork, which is coincidentally being held at the same place and time. At least from a certain point of view. This is what you get for hiring a history monk as an event organiser.

The 2014 event is SOLD OUT, and will take place from the 8th to 11th of August at the Palace Hotel, in Manchester, UK.

We are now taking pre-orders for Convention Merchandise!

Don’t miss out on getting your own Discworld Convention 2014 Shirts and our limited edition pre-order items: Umbrella, Whisky Tumbler, Tea Towel & Coaster Set

Musical Adaptation of Soul Music

This event has finished

The Youth Music Theatre presents

 

Terry Pratchett’s Soul Music

 

To be performed at the Rose Theatre Kingston

 

Showing between 28th and 31st August

 

 

A new, dangerously addictive music has entered Discworld! Performer Imp Y Celyn (translated as ‘bud of the holly’) finds himself the unwitting poster boy for this intoxicating trend. We follow Imp and his eclectic ensemble of wannabe rock stars through their chaotic musical career, as they attempt to harness the hypnotic new movement, the ‘Music with Rocks In’.

Directed by Luke Sheppard, (Associate Director RSC’s Matilda), adapted by stand-up comedian Andrew Doyle with original music from WhatsOnStage Award-nominee Craig Adams (LIFT, Thérèse Raquin), and choreographed by Off West End Award-winner Cressida Carré (Titanic). Soul Music continues our association with Sir Terry Pratchett, and follows the success of our previous collaboration Mort The Musical.

Boundary Players Mort ProductionBoundary Players present

 

Terry Pratchett’s Mort

 

To be performed at the William Penney Theatre

 

in Tadley on the Hampshire/Berkshire border

 

Showing between 6th and 10th May

 

Death comes to us all. When it came to Mort, he offered him a job.

 

But when Mort is left in charge for an evening, he allows his heart to rule his head and soon the whole of causality and the future of the Discworld itself, are at risk.

 

Along the way, Mort encounters not only Death’s adopted daughter, Ysabell – who has been 16 for 35 years – and his mysterious manservant Albert – whose cooking can harden an artery at ten paces – but also an incompetent wizard with a talking doorknocker and a beautiful, but rather bad-tempered and dead, princess.

 

He also, of course, meets Death.

Something is amiss in the Kingdom of Lancre…

Local witches Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg seem to have their suspicions, but are remaining deliberately cryptic.  Will their protégé Magrat Garlick manage to reveal the name of this unknown threat, or be too wrapped up in her own Royal Wedding plans to care?

Can Ridcully find his way through the Trousers of Time?

And will we ever see the Stick and Bucket dance ever again?

One thing is certain:  it’s circle time.

The “Lords and Ladies” are coming…

This amateur production of “Lords and Ladies” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH. LTD

Newport Free Grammar School presents

Terry Pratchett’s WYRD SISTERS by Stephen Briggs

Thursday 13 – Saturday 15 March 2014 @ 7:30pm

To be performed at Newport Free Grammar School, Essex, CB11 3TR

This is Macbeth like you’ve never seen it before, and probably never will again! There’s a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of a murdered king, some rather simple soldiers, actors and strolling players and a whole kingdom in trouble! The excitement would not be complete without Nanny Ogg, Magrat Garlick and Mistress Weatherwax, Terry Pratchett’s most fantastical witches!

To those die hard fans of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld it will all sound familiar and transport you into the amazing world of his stories. For those of you who are still confused – it will just be tremendous fun!

Tickets £8, concessions £6

Knebworth Amateur Dramatic Society present Guards! Guards!

This event has finished

KATS present Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards! by Stephen Briggs

 Thursday 21 – Saturday 23 November 7.45pm

Knebworth Village Hall

This is a comedy of epic proportions. It has swords, dragons, a hero, a damsel in distress. Carrot is different from the other dwarves – he’s six feet tall. There’s only one thing for it – he’ll have to leave and join the City Night Watch in Ankh-Morpork. It’s unfortunate that he’s arrived just at the moment when the city is under threat from a 60-foot fire-breathing dragon . . . perhaps the Librarian – whose dabbling in magic had the unfortunate side-effect of turning him into an Orang Utan – can help him.  To aficionados of Terry Pratchett’s Discworld it will all sound familiar. For the rest of us – it will just be tremendous fun!

Tickets £7, concessions £6

Box office Jo Simson 01438 814166 or 07952 199183

Or Village News, Station Road
