West End cast announced for The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch will open at the Vaudeville Theatre in London on 24th July and  run until 8th  September.

The cast has just been announced as Rosie Abraham (Peter Pan Goes Wrong) as Ethel, Danielle Bird (Alice's Adventures Underground) as Mildred, Molly-Grace Cutler (We'll Live and Die in These Towns) as Miss Bat, Meg Forgan (We'll Live and Die in These Towns) as Fenella, Rachel Heaton (The Odd Couple) as Miss Hardbroom, Rebecca Killick (Pink Mist) as Maud, Emma Lau (Table) as Drusilla, Megan Leigh Mason (Sunny Afternoon) as Miss Drill, Polly Lister (Table) as Agatha/Miss Cackle, Consuela Rolle (Remember, Remember) as Enid and Lauryn Redding (Educating Rita) as Griselda.

Directed by Theresa Heskins (The Snow Queen), the show is based on Jill Murphy's classic series of books and is adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves. The piece follows the accident-prone Mildred Hubble, an ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches. Now in her final year, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest and most important adventure yet... but 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.

Presented by Kenny Wax Family Entertainment, Novel Theatre and Nica Burns the Northampton  Royal & Derngate production  is designed by Simon Daw (Humble Boy), music by Luke Potter (Hetty Feather) with aerial consultancy by Vicki Amedume.
