An aw­fully good show!

Win tick­ets to see David Wal­liams’ Aw­ful Aun­tie at The­atre Royal

Bath Chronicle - - FRONT PAGE -

David Wal­liams has sold mil­lions of books world­wide, his sto­ries have been turned into TV favourites and lat­terly plays and one of his best comes to the The­atre Royal Bath later this month. And you can be there to watch Aw­ful Aun­tie, an ac­tion-packed half-term treat, com­plete with a moun­tain owl. We have teamed up with the The­atre Royal to of­fer a fam­ily ticket for four to en­joy the show on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 23 at 7pm. Rec­om­mended for au­di­ences aged 5 to 105, ex­pect to be thor­oughly en­ter­tained as Wal­liams’ amaz­ing tale of frights, fights and friend­ship, is brought to life in an ac­tion-packed stage pro­duc­tion per­formed by a tal­ented cast. When Stella (Ge­orgina Leonidas) sets off to visit Lon­don with her par­ents, Lord and Lady Saxby, she has no idea her life is in dan­ger. Wak­ing up three months later, only her Aunt Al­berta can tell Stella what has hap­pened. But not ev­ery­thing Al­berta tells her turns out to be true and Stella quickly dis­cov­ers she’s in for the fight of her life against her very own aw­ful aun­tie. Aw­ful Aun­tie be­came the best­selling chil­dren’s book of 2014 sell­ing 50,000 copies in its first week on the book shelves and win­ning the Spec­savers Chil­dren’s Book of the Year. Both funny and thrilling, this ‘must-see’ new stage pro­duc­tion for chil­dren, par­ents, grand­par­ents and, of course, aun­ties, is pro­duced by the West End team be­hind Gangsta Granny. Di­rec­tor Neal Fos­ter said: “I adored the book when I read it and I knew in­stantly it would make a fab­u­lous the­atre show be­cause it is such a grip­ping story. This is the big­gest show we’ve ever staged in our 25 year his­tory. It’s an enor­mous set to recre­ate Saxby Hall, a Rolls Royce car, a gi­ant owl, spe­cial ef­fects, all wrapped up in the most thrilling story, which un­folds in real time. It will be thrilling, scary and hi­lar­i­ous all at the same time!”
