The Witches

Synopsis

Share:

“A real witch could smell you across the street… to a witch, you would smell like fresh dog droppings!”

This Christmas, Roald Dahl’s scariest book is brought to life in a tremendously terrifying treat for the whole family.

Witches absolutely detest children. They find them revolting and are planning to wipe them out like weasels! They want to squish them and squiggle them and make them disappear. But one brave young boy and his grandmother have a plan to get rid of the witches for good… if only they can avoid being turned into mice.

Directed by Curve Artistic Director, Nikolai Foster, The Witches features a hugely talented cast of actor-musicians and mind boggling illusions that will leave you flabbergasted!

The Witches contains stupendously scary bits and is recommended for children aged 7+ and their brave grown-ups.

Running time: 1 hour 40 mins (includes 15 mins interval)
