HERE BE MONSTERS • Stage Show Production Photos

Mayflower Productions have just released a smashing set of production photos of the new Here Be Monsters stage show created by Robin Belfield and Simon Slater. The show is an adaptation of the  picture book, written by me and illustrated by Poly Bernatene. You can find the photos on the show's new Facebook page, but I thought I'd share them here as well.

"Captain Cut-Throat was a pirate and a fearless pirate too …"
Ben Tolley as the foolishly fearless fox.

"… He had the fastest pirate ship and the fiercest pirate crew."

Right: Stinky O'Bleary (Toby Vaughan). Bottom Left: Sneaky McSqueaky (Eloise Secker)

"So despite the mate's misgivings, they set sail that very day, …"

"… And with a fair wind in their favour, they were quickly on their way." 

"So the first half of the voyage passed without a hitch,
As the crew talked of the gemstones and how they'd all be rich." 

Lookout Quilly glumly surveys the horizon

"Then something burrowed through the hull and broke in from beneath,
Something smooth and slippery, with far too many teeth." 

You can find details of the 2015 tour dates on the Mayflower Productions web site. Details of 2016 tour dates coming soon.

You can keep up with the latest news and tour dates by following the show on Facebook and Twitter.

And you can find out more about the picture book on this page of my web site.
