The Worst Witch announces West End transfer

Our Made In Northampton production The Worst Witch will fly into the West End for 7 weeks only, over the summer holidays, from Wed 24 July – Sun 8 September, following its hugely successful premiere here at Royal & Derngate and a hit UK tour.

The new story, adapted for the stage from Jill Murphy’s original books by Emma Reeves (who won a Royal Television Society Award for Best Children’s TV Programme and 2017 British Screenwriters Award for Best Children’s Programme for the televised version of The Worst Witch) was launched last November as our Made in Northampton 2018 Christmas show.

The Worst Witch is directed by Theresa Heskins (2017 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People) and designed by Simon Daw, with music by Luke Potter. Kenny Wax Family Entertainment, Novel Theatre and Nica Burns present a Royal & Derngate, Northampton Production.
