The Witches

4 Male, 6 Female

David Wood from Roald Dahl Price: $12.99

This is a faithful adaptation of Roald Dahlís classic story in which Boy and his Grandmother defeat the Grand High Witch and her followers, who are holding a Conference in an English seaside hotel

During the struggle, Boy gets turned into a mouse

The Witches are nothing like the ones who wear pointed hats and fly on broomsticks Ė they look very much like ordinary women, which helps their deception

The play offers many opportunities for illusions and inventive puppetry

Humour is provided by the vulgar Jenkins family, whose son, Bruno, also becomes a mouse

Cast: Actors to play up to 21 roles (doubling)

"While the kids will be thrilled by the dazzling illusions and the complex puppetry, their parents will be no less engaged by the sly humor that lurks within this ostensibly frivolous confection" ~ What's On

" ... this verminous entertainment has a good hiss-and-boo rating and can be warmly recommended to dutiful parents as well as their children" ~ Sunday Telegraph
