When a young boy and his grandmother check into a seaside hotel, they soon realise that the group of rather odd ladies holding a conference there aren’t quite what they seem.

Soon, the boy finds himself fighting none other than the vicious Grand High Witch!

In our Young People’s Theatre production, David Wood’s script sticks closely to Dahl’s best-selling original novel, capturing its distinctive blend of comedy and horror that will entertain Roald Dahl fans aged 8 to 80!
