Event Description

Performed in the McDonough Room on the second floor of The Hanover Theatre Conservatory and Event Center, 551 Main Street, Worcester MA

This is a faithful adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic story in which Boy and his Grandmother defeat the Grand High Witch and her followers, who are holding a conference in an English seaside hotel. During the struggle, Boy gets turned into a mouse.
 
The Witches are nothing like the ones who wear pointed hats and fly on broomsticks. They look very much like ordinary women, which helps their deception. The play offers many opportunities for illusions and inventive puppetry. Humor is provided by the vulgar Jenkins family, whose son, Bruno, also becomes a mouse.
 
Wear your Halloween costume and receive a special treat at the door! 
 
A donation of $5 per person will benefit our Access to the Arts Fund, which provides access to the performing arts for youth and families who cannot afford to otherwise participate.

This story will be performed by The Hanover Theatre Conservatory’s Youth Acting Company, our resident performance company of students.
