Look out for a merry mayhem of music and murder when Entity Theatre performs Terry Pratchett’s play Maskerade at Pepper Theater!
To round off the 2011 season, Entity Theatre is performing Maskerade, a play based on the book by Terry Pratchett (adapted for the stage by Stephen Briggs). Performances will be on 10-12 November, 1-3 December and 8-10 December at Pepper Theater in PEP Neuperlach.
Agnes wanted to be in the opera to get away from country life; her singing talents have got her in. Christine has always dreamt of being in the opera; her daddy's offer to break someone's legs may have influenced her getting in. Mr. Bucket has left the cheese industry and is looking forward to a quiet retirement as the new owner of the opera, so he's in anyway. Walter, the odd-job man, has always been in it; he's part of the opera. So all should be happy - if it wasn't for a phantom: the opera ghost who starts murdering the cast. And, as if murder wasn't enough of a problem, then the country witches Nanny Ogg and Granny Weatherwax just pop by to say hello, “diplomatic-like”, without interfering.
And so a merry mayhem of music and murder is assured, as Entity Theatre performs its first sequel, Maskerade. Once again we meet the witches of Lancre, whom we first met on the Entity stage in their hugely successful Wyrd Sisters performed in 2007.
