About this Event

Long before Harry Potter there was Mildred Hubble. An ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches. Now in her final year, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest and most important adventure yet…

Jealous Ethel Hallow is always out to spoil Mildred’s fun. Miss Hardbroom is opposed to all fun in general. And just as Mildred sparks some inevitable mayhem certain to upset them both, an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that could threaten not just the Academy, but the whole world.

Jill Murphy‘s The Worst Witch stories have sold more than five million copies worldwide and have been made into numerous films and TV series. The most recent and successful of which is written by playwright Emma Reeves (Royal Television Society Award for Best Children’s TV Programme and 2017 British Screenwriters Award for Best Children’s Programme), who now brings these stories to life on stage in a major new play touring the UK direct from a Royal & Derngate Christmas season.

Featuring all of Jill Murphy’s beloved characters, this thrilling new stage adaptation is directed by Theresa Heskins (2017 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People) and features original songs, music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!

Suitable for ages 7+
