About the show

Emma Reeves created the story for stage, basing it on Jill Murphy’s original books.

The show delves into the tale of ‘an ordinary girl who finds herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches’. 

‘Accident-prone Mildred Hubble and her fellow pupils leave a trail of mayhem behind them as they find themselves at the centre of a battle that’s being fought for their future’. 

The musical is also directed by Theresa Heskins, the 2017 winner of the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People.
