This November the Orcutt Academy High School Drama Class is hosting a family-friendly night of theater with Roald Dahl’s “The Witches”, adapted for the stage by David Wood with special arrangement by Samuel French, Ltd.

 

Real witches are nothing like the ones you see at Halloween. They don’t wear pointed hats, nor do they fly on broomsticks. Real witches look very much like ordinary women, but don’t be fooled by their appearance—witches are evil! They want nothing more than to smash, squash, and frizzle children like fritters! Each year all of the witches in England gather together to consult with the Grand High Witch, the most evil woman in all of creation. At their annual meeting, the Grand High Witch shares her latest and greatest potion, which she claims will bring an end to all of the children of England. But when a young boy stumbles into their secret meeting, he discovers the witches plans and must destroy the witches before he is exterminated.

Tickets will be available in the OAHS Business office next week. Tickets are $10 for regular seats and $20 for VIP seats. VIP seats include the “intermission experience” where guests will mingle with some not-so-wicked witches and enjoy a tasty treat. Seating is limited for each show, so tickets will not be sold at the door.
