Roald Dahl's THE WITCHES

“Saving the world from witches is a tall order for a boy they’ve turned into a mouse.” It’s fun only they could brew up! Hot on the heels of Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Brookside Theatre will be bringing Roald Dahl’s classic story, THE WITCHES magically to life this Halloween.

A young boy, recently orphaned, is taken to England by his grandmother. At the hotel in which they are staying, a group of witches have gathered to prepare a plot to rid the world of children. Together with his friend, they are discovered, transformed into rodents, yet escape and now must stop the evil plan at all cost. Join our hero, his friend and his grandmother as they take on a gruesome gang of witches and face the most repulsive, terrifying and powerful villain of them all – the Grand High Witch herself. Will the witches triumph? Are the children of England doomed? Can two small boys and an elderly lady save the day? Roald Dahl’s award-winning tale has all the answers.

If you adored the book and loved the film, then you will scream with delight when you see this spectacular, magical adaptation of this timeless classic live on stage. This unforgettable production is suitable for audiences of all ages.
