"When I was growing up I always loved the witch characters in film and animation because I thought they were powerful, beautiful, flawed and true individuals," comments author Harmony France. "I wrote this cabaret to celebrate those often misunderstood characters. It will be an outrageous, exciting, fun evening with a cast that is not only a power-house collection of high-caliber actresses, but are also powerful, beautiful, and truly individual women. It is about time for this coven to hit audiences in Chicago!"
Scheduled to perform are Missy Aguilar (Chicago Shakespeare's Sense and Sensibility and The Little Mermaid, Drury Lane's Les Miserables, Paramount Theatre's In The Heights), Broadway World Award winner and multiple Jeff Award nominee Harmony France (Sister Act National Tour with Troika Entertainment, Paramount Theatre's Fiddler on the Roof, Bailiwick Chicago's Violet), Broadway World Award winner Amanda Horvath (Writers Theatre's A Little Night Music, Chicago Shakespeare's Follies, Bailiwick Chicago's Murder Ballad) and two-time Jeff Award winner (with three Jeff Award nominations this year) Danni Smith (Marriott's City of Angels, Bailiwick Chicago's The Wild Party, Theo Ubique's Passion) finishes up the dynamic line-up.
