COMING SOON FROM BLAINE COMMUNITY THEATER!
“THE WITCHES” based on the book by Roald Dahl and adapted by David Wood
A young Boy goes to live with his Grandmother after tragically losing his parents, and among the tales of fancy she fills the Boy’s head with is the truth about witches–bald, clawed, horrid women that sniff out children and squelch them from the world. What starts as a cautionary tale soon becomes a race against time when the Boy and Grandmother, on a vacation holiday, accidentally find themselves face-to-face with the Great High Witch of the World and her army of child-haters and have to stop them before they get the chance to change all of the children of England into mice!
The newest offering to our traditional Halloween shows, “The Witches” is a pleasant mix of funny and scary. It should be appropriate for all ages–no physical violence or adult content–but the show is based on a Roald Dahl book, and Dahl has been known to have a bit of a dark undertone to his stories. You know your children better than we do, so if you have concerns about occasional scary scenes, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
The play shows at Oct. 25 & 26 and Nov. 1 & 2 at 7:00 PM and Oct. 27 & Nov. 3 at 2:00 PM, at Blaine High School’s Orange & Black Box Theater. There is still ongoing construction on the new football field stands, so although the side parking lot near the theater should be open, space may be in short supply and if you are able-bodied, please park in the school’s main parking lot and save the side lot availability for less-abled patrons. (See the map image below to help navigate the Blaine campus.)
Tickets are sold at the door by cash, check or credit for $15, or $13 for Seniors/Students. Each ticket also grants you a Repeat Offender voucher, which allows you to come back and see any other performance of the show for just $5.
