The Worst Witch

The Worst Witch

Vaudeville Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

The Worst Witch flies into the West End for a strictly limited season at the Vaudeville Theatre.

Bringing Mildred Hubble and the action-packed adventures of Miss Cackle’s Academy to the London stage, this action-packed new stage adaptation by Emma Reeves is directed by Theresa Heskins (2017 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People) and features original songs, music, magic and a dose of Mildred’s unique brand of utter pandemonium!

The Worst Witch is booking from 24 July 2019 until 8 September 2019 at the Vaudeville Theatre, London.


Mildred Hubble was an ordinary girl who found herself in an extraordinary place: a school for witches. Now in her final year, accident prone Mildred and her fellow pupils are about to embark on their biggest and most important adventure yet…

Jealous Ethel Hallow is always out to spoil Mildred’s fun. Miss Hardbroom is opposed to all fun in general. And just as Mildred sparks some inevitable mayhem certain to upset them both, an old enemy returns with a plan for revenge that could threaten not just the Academy, but the whole world.


Adapted for the stage by Emma Reeves, directed by Theresa Heskins with design by Simon Daw and music by Luke Potter.
