The Drinks Inclusive* Monsters Ball is one of the most exciting and anticipated nights of the Potters calendar, with the night culminating in the incredible Halloween Spectacular from Potters Theatre Company. But did you know that the Spectacular is actually performed three times, so that families at October Half Term can also enjoy the show? Here is your guide to the Halloween Spectacular 2018…
Get ready for a Thriller of a performance as the Atlas Theatre becomes a House of Fun and Potters Theatre Bring to Life some of the best Halloween-themed songs and monstrous hits from over the years. The cast will be dressed-up in their scariest attire as they sprinkle some Black Magic to perform The Final Countdown to Halloween night itself with some Superstitions thrown in along the way and guaranteed Hot Stuff as you see the Devil Woman and the Ghostbusters live on stage.
Enjoy hits such as You Spin Me Round, Man with the Hex, Backstreet’s Back and Hungry Like the Wolf, as songs from the likes of Kings of Leon, Lady Gaga, The Searchers, Michael Jackson and Madness will all be given the Potters Theatre Company treatment by our incredible cast.
With months of planning, weeks of rehearsals, days of costume fittings and hours in make-up, get ready to Walk This Way to a deadly Halloween Spectacular not to be missed.
We caught up with our entertainments director, Nigel Pattle, to find out more about the show. Nigel says: “The Monsters Ball is one of the most exciting and anticipated nights of the year. The atmosphere on this evening is truly like no other as all of our guests dress up in their spookiest costumes and celebrate the scariest night in the calendar. The excitement builds before dinner as the Atrium between the Garden Restaurant and Atlas Theatre is filled with frighteningly fun games and devilish decorations to put you in the mood for a night of thrills and chills. The adults fancy dress competition is something to behold as the most elaborate handmade costumes battle to win the top spot and the comedy team are on hand to provide the laughs with their own take on trick or treat! The highlight of the night has to be the Potters Theatre Company and the spooktacular show that gets everyone up dancing with an irresistible mix of songs both old and new given the extra special Halloween treatment. With inclusive drinks* and a packed theatre filled with guests ready to party, it’s one night you cannot miss, whether you love Halloween or simply love a great night out. And, with so much work put into the show, Potters Theatre Company also perform the show on our October Half Term family breaks, so that families don’t miss out and can get dressed-up too.”
Nicky Hathway, Creative Producer/Director, adds: “The stage looks ghoulishly good for the Halloween Spectacular with amazing sets, stunning costumes and vocals from the Potters Theatre Company are just exceptional. It really is a show that will get everyone up dancing and wanting to join in, and it seems to get better and better every year, with electrifying entertainment. The Potters Theatre Company will be performing your favourite spooky songs from years gone by and Mark Brewer and the comedy team will be on hand to ensure that the hysteria never ends. One thing that guests can be sure of is a night that they’ll never forget and guests will be dying for the show to never end as the cast and everyone backstage puts everything into this incredible night. On the night of the Monsters Ball the Resort is decked out with cobwebs, pumpkins, spiders and tombstones to welcome all the zombies, witches and monsters to the Resort! What is also incredible is that Potters Theatre Company do all their make-up themselves, and guests always comment on how amazing they look!”
And remember that fancy dress is optional, so it is up to you if you want to dress to distress!
