David Wood's adaptation of Dahl's classic story pits a young orphan Boy against child-hating witches determined to rid England of all its children. Even when the Boy is turned into a mouse, he and his Grandmother come up with a way to thwart the witches' plan. The adaptation is funny, scary and true to Dahl's novel. 8 actors will play multiple roles in the telling of the story, which includes puppetry and other elements of theatre magic!
AEA Actors of all ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
