A family trip to the theatre to watch an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’, proved to be very enjoyable and entertaining.
The audience, both children and adults for whom the book has no doubt been a favourite for decades, were no doubt eager to see a worthy adaptation. Roald Dahl’s vividly descriptive story is certainly done justice on stage, and the audiences enjoyment was shown in the hearty applause throughout the show.
A variety of musical instruments, played delightfully by a multi-talented cast lead the audience through the tale of a young boy is orphaned and then turned into a mouse. His loving grandmother enlightens and guides him through his days as a boy and mouse. And, in tradition true to the much loved author, the audience is invited to snigger at the silly, uncompromising habits of grown ups through the characters of Bruno’s parents, and the witches themselves.
Great acting combined with entertaining illusions and songs create an atmosphere of suspense that has the audience at the edge of their seats, ready to see the High Witch reach her demise. The production will be running at the Curve until the middle of January. For more information, visit
