Witches Abroad a sell-out success for Monstrous Productions

The latest stage show by Monstrous Productions has helped the group raise £11,000 for Alzheimer’s Research UK, beating their original £10,000 target

The four-day run at The Gate Arts Centre was completely sold out, with over 700 people watching the fantastic adaptation of the late Terry Pratchet’s Witches Abroad.

The production, sponsored by NCMH, received rave reviews by critics and fans alike. Adam Walker declared it “clever and comical” and was full of praise for three witches played by Ellen Warren, Lowri Belson and Zoe Azzopardi and Jamie Gibbs paid tribute to director Amy Davies.

Witches Abroad followed previous adaptations of Wyred Sisters, Mort and Carpe Jugulum.

Monstrous Productions are already planning their next show, an adaptation of Sir Terry Pratchet’s Night Watch, the 29th novel in the discworld series. The production will take place between 9-12 September and tickets will be available later this year from monstrousptc.com. Again, all the proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

The team are currently looking for new cast members, so if you’re interested in auditioning contact monstrousproductions2012@gmail.com. Auditions are due to take place later this month with rehearsals starting on 11 May.
