Production notes

The production involves plenty of make-up, puppetry and illusion, with some interesting scenery challenges, so will be lots of fun!

I intend for the two boys, Boy (age 7) and Bruno (similarly aged), to be played by adults (male or female), though this is not set in stone – they could be played by teenagers.  Both roles are quite physical, involving comedy and puppetry.

Although the witches are mainly without individual lines, they feature prominently in the two major scenes and are vital to the character of the whole show!

Also!

We are running a poster competition to get local primary schools involved and to spread the word!
