Terry Pratchett’s Men At Arms • 21-24 August • The Gate

Peculiar Productions presents Terry Pratchett’s classic comedy-fantasy thriller, brought to life on stage. The City Watch needs men! And women, of course. Not to mention dwarfs, trolls, gargoyles, and whatever Nobby Nobbs actually is. It’s not as if Captain Vimes doesn’t have enough to deal with; warring factions of assassins and clowns, the anniversary of an ancient battle making the city just a tad tetchy, and a ruler who’s perfected the art of ‘benevolent tyranny’. The last thing he and his Watch need is a big group of new recruits who won’t accept that ‘team spirit’ doesn’t include hitting each other with axes. But Vimes needs to make sure they can all get along, and fast – because no-one else can stop a deadly secret that stalks the streets... Adapted by Stephen Briggs. Directed by Matthew Hitchman.

The Wedding Singer • 29-31 August • Theatr Soar

The Wedding Singer takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer’s sparkling new score does for the ‘80s what Hairspray did for the ‘60s. Just say yes to the most romantic musical in 20 years. It’s 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey’s favorite wedding singer. He’s the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.
