Based on the cult film of the same name, along with the famous John Updike novel, The Witches of Eastwick is a witty musical by John Dempsey and Dana P. Rowe. The show opened in London at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane in 2000 and was produced by Cameron Mackintosh. The show follows the plot of the film quiet closely, as three women from a conservative American town conjure up The Devil to help them with their various problems. As Darryl Van Horne begins to woo the inhabitants of Eastwick, the women begin to let themselves go and attract negative attention.
The Henegar Center will offer talkbacks with the director and cast following the Saturday evening performances, October 29, 2016. Rion said, "The focus of the show helps to bring to light the importance of self-awareness. Find strength in yourself first." Rion sees Darryl Van Horne as a modern day Harold Hill. "He blows into this town and changes everything - for the good." Rion focuses on the empowerment of these women. His work with the Cry-Baby team has led to this opportunity with The Witches of Eastwick.
