The Unwicked Witch: An Unlikely Tale

We are excited to announce auditions for The Unwicked Witch: An Unlikely Tale!

The Unwicked Witch is the unlikely tale of a young girl, Winona, who lives with her grandmother, great grandmother, and great, great grandmother. These grandmothers happen to be the last three witches in the world - Hobble, Gobble and Wobble. Their goal is to teach Winona the ways of being a witch; but she just can't seem to get the hang of it. When some visitors wander into the house where the girl and her grandmothers live, a series of quirky and unusual events occur.
