Photo Flash: First Look at MainStreet Theatre Company's THE WITCHES


City Staff have reported an unusual sight around the halls of the Lewis Family Playhouse. Normal-seeming women have been seen squelching unsuspecting children, who then seem to disappear forever. In some instances, instead of being squelched, children have been rumored to be transformed into other creatures, including mice!

Staff urges all patrons to the Playhouse and the Library to be vigilant - and to purchase tickets to MainStreet Theatre Company's production of Roald Dahl's The Witches, opening October 14th and running through October 29th. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

Opening their 2017/208 season, and arriving just in time for Halloween, MainStreet Theatre Company presents The Witches, based on Roald Dahl's book, and adapted by David Wood. The production is directed by Abigail Deser.

This classic tale combines some quirky, scary, fun with great messages about what it means to confront evil, how to be a hero, and the power of being accepted and loved for who you are. When a Boy is turned into a mouse by the evil witches, his loving grandmother accepts him for who he is, and they team up to prevent the witches from turning all of England's children into mice. Even though The Boy stays a mouse, he reminds his grandmother that it doesn't matter who you are or what you look like so long as somebody loves you.

MainStreet's production includes Doug Harvey as BOY, Janet Greaves as GRANDMOTHER, and Gigi Bermingham as THE GRAND HIGH WITCH. The many other characters who inhabit Dahl's singular world will be played by Quinn Armstrong, Edward Brauer, Matt Foyer, Taylor Jackson Ross, and Sarah van der Pol.
