The Worst Witch Live Transfers to the West End
Following its successful UK tour The Worst Witch is heading to the Vaudeville Theatre for a brief run over the Summer holidays.
This new story has been specifically adapted for the stage from Jill Murphy’s much-loved books by DHA client Emma Reeves. Emma has had huge success with her adaptations, having previously won a Royal Television Society Award and the 2017 British Screenwriters Award for Best Children’s Programme for the televised version of the books.
The Worst Witch centres on Mildred Hubble – an ordinary girl in an extraordinary school. But Mildred is unfortunately a little accident-prone, and as she’s learning her magical skills, she accidentally leaves a trail of mayhem in her wake. Before too long, Mildred and her fellow pupils find themselves at the centre of a battle that’s being fought for their future.
Directed by UK Theatre Award-winner Theresa Heskins, this magical adaptation includes original songs by Luke Potter, music, magical staging – and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of accidental chaos!
The play opens on 24th July 2019 and closes on 8th September 2019.
