Sell A Door's AVENUE Q and SEUSSICAL to Transfer to Hong Kong, Nov 2014

David Hutchinson and Phillip Rowntree for Sell A Door Theatre Company and Richard Darbourne Ltd have announced that two of their most popular shows are heading abroad, as part of its ambition to tour its work internationally.

Avenue Q, currently on tour throughout the UK and Ireland, will be joined by the Children's West End Hit Seussical (Theatre for Young Audiences Version), performing in Hong Kong at the Lyric Theatre of The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts in November.

Seussical has been produced at the Arts Theatre in the heart of London's West End for the last two years by Sell A Door Theatre Company.

Both shows are being presented by ABA Productions, an international theatre production company dedicated to creating and promoting a wide variety of performance styles from all corners of the world. Recent productions have included The Woman in Black, How to Catch a Star, The Taming of the Shrew performed by Shakespeare's Globe, The Gruffalo, Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange, Room on the Broom , Waiting for Godot and The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Matthew Gregory, Executive Producer of ABA Productions said: "We are excited to bring Seussical for the first time to Hong Kong after its sold out performances on Broadway and in the UK. Direct from the UK, this is a perfect treat for kids and their families and friends. Kids will be thrilled to see familiar stories live on stage, while the adults will be delighted by the fantastical and charming music. It will definitely become the perfect treat before Christmas!

We are also thrilled to have the totally wacky, over-the-top, outrageous but totally charming show finally coming to Hong Kong! AVENUE Q is more than a comedy-musical, it is a stage phenomenon and I am certain this show will be a sure-fire hit in Hong Kong where we all need the comedy at unbridled full speed!"

David Hutchinson, Artistic Director, said: "We have been touring the UK for four years now and it has long been an ambition to take one of our shows internationally. Matthew Gregory and ABA Productions have been presenting productions from the UK for many years and we are thrilled that two of our productions are being brought over.

On a personal note, I grew up in Hong Kong and so it is an added bonus that our first international dates will take me back there."
