Witches Brew

October 17 -21

Gilda, the witch, is ready for a change. She stumbles upon a recipe that will change her forever and is very excited to jump right in and become the person she has wanted to be. If she hurries she can make the change in time for her birthday - her 300th birthday! When her sister, Wanda, steps in to “help” Gilda’s plans go awry. One hilarious disaster follows another. You can help
Wanda to fix the mess she has made. Your suggestions and singing will help.
