Newton Theater Company Presents The Witches @ Union Church in Waban
Oct 26 @ 10:00 am – Oct 27 @ 5:00 pm
Newton Theater Company Presents The Witches @ Union Church in Waban | Newton | Massachusetts | United States

The first show of Newton Theatre Company’s seventh season is sure to be the spookiest of the year– just in time for Halloween!

Roald Dahl’s eerie children’s book is brought to life by David Wood’s lively adaptation. When a young orphaned boy moves in with his grandmother and becomes aware of the existence of witches, he must do whatever it takes to stop these powerful beings– including the Grand High Witch herself– from eliminating all the children in England.

Appropriate for children ages six and up.
