DISCOVER what witches look like and why they detest children who smell like dog-droppings when The Witches plays at Koorliny Arts Centre next month.
Directed by Ryan Taaffe, the second production in the Koorliny Arts Centre and Kwinana Industries Council 2017 Performance Season is based on the much loved children’s book of the same name by Roald Dahl.
The Witches tells the story of a brave young boy and his Norwegian grandmother as they battle against England’s child-hating witches.
But before families think this is a nice story, be warned.
This is not a fairy tale; this is about real witches.
Real witches don’t ride around on broomsticks. They don’t even wear black cloaks and hats.
They are vile, cunning, detestable creatures who disguise themselves as nice, ordinary ladies.
Now the Grand High witch is planning to get rid of every child in England: can anybody stop them?
Audiences can expect a laugh-out-loud, edge-of-the-seat theatrical treat, with creepily good performances that will send shivers up their spines.
Whether you have read the book or seen the film and want to experience the show live on stage, or whether you have seen it before and want to recapture the magic, The Witches is set to bewitch.
