The Witches at South Coast Rep March 12- 20


The Witches, adapted by David Wood from Roald Dahl’s popular fantasy novel, and directed by Mercy Vasquez, will be presented by South Coast Repertory’s Junior Players in the Nicholas Studio, March 12-20, 2016.
The cast are members of SCR’s Junior Players (grades 6-8), chosen through audition after at least two years in the Theatre Conservatory.  The Junior Players portray all the roles in Wood’s stage version, which includes puppet characters. But the witches are real!  And they’re not the evil ones with pointy hats.  Everyone idolizes these witches—their leader is a pop icon—but they’re cooking up a plan to get rid of all the children in the world by turning them into mice.  Standing in their way (or trying to) are Grandma and Boy. According to Vasquez, the boys who have been turned into mice, and their mice characters, will exist in a special kind of virtual reality, which playgoers will have to see to enjoy.
Tickets are $10. For more information, check out http://www.scr.org/.
