Adapted from Jill Murphy’s original books by Emma Reeves. 

With Music by Luke Potter.

Directed by Kay Valentine 

Before Harry Potter exploded onto the scene there was another seemingly ordinary child, Mildred Hubble, who wound up in the most extraordinary of places… A school for witches! 

Now its time for you to join the world of magic and mayhem at Altrincham Garrick Playhouse this Easter Holiday! 

Currently in her final year at Miss Cackle’s Academy, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest adventure yet… When Mildred and her friends decide to put on a play about their experiences as witches in training, mayhem inevitably ensues. 

Jealous Ethel Hallow is always out to spoil Mildred’s fun. Stern Miss Hardbroom is opposed to all fun in general. Worst of all, an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that could threaten not just the Academy, but the whole world. 

Featuring all of Jill Murphy’s beloved characters, this action-packed new stage adaptation by Emma Reeves includes original music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!

The Worst Witch premiered at Royal & Derngate, Northampton in 2019 and toured the UK before transferring to London’s West End later that year. The production then went on to win the Olivier Award for Best Family Show in 2020!
