Tick­ets to see The Worst Witch

Kentish Express Ashford & District - What's On - - EVENTS -

THE WORST WITCH AT THE MAR­LOWE THE­ATRE, CAN­TER­BURY Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 21 to Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 23, 2019 The much-loved char­ac­ters of the best-sell­ing books come to life on stage... Long be­fore Harry Pot­ter came along, there was Mil­dred Hub­ble. An or­di­nary girl who found her­self in an ex­tra­or­di­nary place: a school for witches. THE BIG­GEST AD­VEN­TURE YET Now in her fi­nal year, ac­ci­dent-prone Mil­dred and her fel­low pupils are about to em­bark on their big­gest 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 was 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 is now bring­ing these stories to life on the Royal Stage at Christ­mas in a ma­jor new play that will sub­se­quently em­bark upon a na­tional tour. Fea­tur­ing all of Jill Mur­phy’s beloved char­ac­ters, this orig­i­nal story is di­rected by Theresa He­skins (2017 UK The­atre Award for Best Show for Chil­dren and Young Peo­ple) and fea­tures spe­cially-writ­ten mu­sic, breath-tak­ing magic and plenty of Mil­dred’s unique brand of ut­ter pan­de­mo­nium!
