Walterdale Playhouse is excited to present Terry Pratchett’s® Wyrd Sisters, adapted by Stephen Briggs from the Discworld® series’ novel of the same name. Both hardcore fans of the series and those not familiar with the work will be immersed in a fantasy world where magic is real, humour is abundant, and the whole world rests on the back of four elephants on a turtle. Cast and crew have been working hard to create fantastical costumes, make up, and special effects – guaranteeing a visually spectacular evening enhanced by comedic performances. King Verence of Lancre is murdered by his cousin, Duke Felmet, after his ambitious wife persuades him to do so. The King's crown and child are given by an escaping servant to three witches: Magrat Garlik, the maiden; Nanny Ogg, the mother; and Granny Weatherwax; the crone - er, other one. The witches smuggle the child and the crown out of the country with a troupe of traveling actors. They acknowledge that destiny will eventually take its course and that the child, Tomjon, will grow up to defeat Duke Felmet and take his rightful place as king. “The Universe is infinite. It follows therefore that in an infinite universe, there are infinite possibilities; anything must exist somewhere because otherwise what’s the point of having all this infinite to put it in? It is this consistent stuff of stories that explains how, despite infinite spans between Earth and Discworld®, we find fairy tales and Shakespearian drama mirrored on a world where magic works, monsters are real, and it’s possible to fall off the edge of the world....” Directed by J. Nelson Niwa
