Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches is now accepting new students. So make sure you know the Witches’ Code, get yourself a familiar, and let Mildred Hubble show you the ropes!
Mildred Hubble is just an ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches. But not everyone is thrilled by Mildred’s unexpected arrival and her less than predictable ways. Can she overcome the objections of stern Miss Hardbroom and the conniving tricks of jealous Ethel Hallow?
Now in her final year, accident-prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their most important mission yet, when an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that threatens not just the Academy, but the whole world…
Featuring all of Jill Murphy’s beloved characters, this action-packed new stage adaptation by Emma Reeves (Hetty Feather) is directed by Theresa Heskins (2017 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People) and includes original songs, music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!
‘Brims With Magic’

I shall try to keep this spoiler-free, but it very much so is a performance of two halves. And it works. The storyline is true to the magic and wonder of the books, the characterisation is fantastic- the cast, ohmybats the cast were beautiful! If you enjoy theatre in any way, if you like the Worst Witch or have a fondness for Harry Potter - go and see this production. 10/10.
I took my 5 year old granddaughter to see the show and we both loved it x
The show was an absolute delight from start to finish. I had no idea what to expect and I was more than pleasantly surprised. The all-female cast were fantastic and multi-talented. The songs were great; the physical stunts were awesome and the audience engagement was very funny!
My grand daughters (twins) loved this so much... We had an exciting day , the show met their expectations and more We talked about it all the way back to Kent.
The young cast were fantastic. The musical is perfect to take young children to the theatre for the first time. The length of the musical was perfect for my 7 year old.
Brilliant show. Must see if you are a witches fan
Granddaughter enjoyed it
We were the only group of boys in a sea of girls who obviously love the books. But we were enchanted by the clever acting, acrobatics, music and interaction of the show. Highly recommended.
We took our 7 year old daughter as a treat! What a show! Great actors, brilliant musicians on stage all part of the show. Great for all family to enjoy! Would love to see again!!!
Took my almost six year old and we both enjoyed the show. The original music was played deftly on stage by members of the cast. The story was a clever adaptation of Jill Murphy’s classic original story. It was easy to follow and there were some great effects. The baddie was not super scary for little ones but she was bad enough to fit the story. Booster seats were available at no extra cost. Merchandise was reasonably priced (for a change) and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
I took my little girl who is 8 to the show. She loved it, especially seeing the characters walk round the seats before the show. It was definitely one of the best shows we have seen, with a little bit for everyone.
Really excellent musical! My 6 years old girls enjoyed so much that they would love to watch it again!!! The actresses were so talented in all areas singing,dancing,acting and of course in MAGICS! I really loved how they interacted with the audience from the really begging to the really end!
I took my daughter to see the show yesterday... we both absolutely loved it! Amazing!
What a wonderful show, my daughter is a huge fan of the worst witch and thoroughly enjoyed it
I was surprised how much I enjoyed the show. The acting and singing were excellent and my 9 year old loved it. It's officially her new favourite west end show!
