Embark on a thrilling musical adventure with The Witches, which has had its world premiere at the National Theatre. Prepare to discard everything you thought you knew about witches—no pointy hats or broomsticks here. These are the most dangerous creatures on earth, hatching their most evil plan yet. The only hope lies with Luke and his Gran. But with Luke being ten and Gran having a dodgy heart, time is short, danger is everywhere, and they’ve got just one chance to thwart the witches from squalloping every child in England. This rip-roaring musical rendition of Roald Dahl’s timeless tale, with book and lyrics by Olivier Award-winner Lucy Kirkwood, music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominee Dave Malloy, and directed by Lyndsey Turner, promises wit, daring, and heart in abundance.
