“an hour of pure, unbridled joy.” – Herald Sun

Witches? With silly black hats and cloaks riding on broomsticks? No. They’re for fairy tales. Very tame. I’m talking of real witches.

When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty plan to get rid of all the children in the world – by turning them into mice! It’s going to take smarts and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.

Brave boys and girls, rat-racers and retirees are in for a wicked and wonderful time. Lucas Jervies directs this bubbling concoction, based on David Wood’s adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic, with Perth’s Scott Sheridan returning to run amok at the Subiaco Arts Centre during the school holidays.

A Griffin Theatre Company production. The Witches was originally produced at NIDA in 2012 and co-designed by Becky-Dee Trevenen and Hugh O’Connor.
