Bay Street Theater Announces MY WITCH: The Stories Of Margaret Hamilton
Bay Street Theater is pleased to announce a fourth bonus show for the 2019 Mainstage Season entitled My Witch: The Stories of Margaret Hamilton (July 17-21). The show is a new play by John Ahlin which is about the life of Margaret Hamilton, who played the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz. Will Pomerantz, Bay Street's Associate Artistic Director, is directing the production. Will also directed the sellout smash Evita last summer at Bay Street Theater. Margaret Hamilton is portrayed by Jean Tafler (The Deadly Spawn and Una: A Dark Faerie Tale).
The amazing tale of how a gentle kindergarten teacher from Cleveland scared the living daylights out of every one of us, and the brains, heart and courage it took to be America's character woman. The show is described as surprising, fun, haunting and delightful. Margaret Hamilton's Wicked Witch of the West has left an indelible mark on all who have ever seen The Wizard of Oz.
Tickets on sale now starting at $39.99 as part of an add on bonus to the 3-play subscription package for the 2019 Mainstage Season.
