About The Witches

A musical adventure

Everything you know about witches is wrong. Forget the pointy hats and broomsticks: they’re the most dangerous creatures on earth. And now they’ve come up with their most evil plan yet.

The only thing standing in their way is Luke and his Gran. But he’s ten and she’s got a dodgy heart. Time is short, danger is everywhere, and they’ve got just one chance to stop the witches from squalloping every stinking little child in England.

The Witches is a rip-roaring musical version of Roald Dahl’s timeless tale, filled with wit, daring and heart. With book and lyrics by Olivier Award-winner Lucy Kirkwood, music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Dave Malloy, and directed by Lyndsey Turner.

A riot, Wickedly clever production, Must see!

See it if you're not going to miss a campy, over the top, unpredictable, sharp & funny new musical with a catchy score, brilliant lyrics & great cast

Don’t see it if ..did you not read the See It if.. section above? What are you waiting for? Ok, may be a tad scary for very young children. Otherwise, go!

Don’t see it if (I saw a preview and they had some pretty bad staging problems. Assume they’ll sort this but maybe read a review first to check).
