Catch a magical musical adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s witty novel at the ADC theatre, opening Tuesday 8 December!
What happens if you mix the sensationalism of The Phantom of the Opera, the vaudevillian quality of the Marx Brothers and the daftness of Monty Python? Answer: Terry Pratchett’s Maskerade! The Discworld novel is being brought to the stage this month as Bawds tell the story of Agnes Nitt, a plain but talented singer who leaves home to pursue the stage. Here she encounters ghosts, murder, deception – and the indomitable Granny Weatherwax.
Maskerade came out in 1995, the 18th in Pratchett’s Discworld series but a story, like all of them, which very much stands alone. If you’re a newcomer to Pratchett (where have you been?!), expect surreal but likeable characters, sensational scenes and wonderful wordplay.
It’s on at the ADC Theatre, 8-12 December, 7.45pm. Tickets £8-£12.
