Our Next Show

The Witches by Roald Dahl, adapted by David Wood

October 22-November 1

This October, witches will take over the Dress Up Theatre for their annual convention!

When one little boy unwittingly stumbles into the annual meeting of witches, he hears their nasty plan to get rid of all the children in the world by turning them into mice! It's going to take smarts and sneakiness to stop them and not get squished in the process.

Based on audience polls and surveys, we will be producing the popular Witches story by Roald Dahl this fall, just in time for Halloween. This is a very spooky story, recommended for children age 5 and up. For younger or more sensitive audiences, consider How to Spot a Witch, our own special interactive adaption of the story for preschool ages Saturday mornings (10/24 and 10/31).


$9/member, $10/visitor, $16/stay and play.
