The Witches of Eastwick is currently being performed at Preston’s Charter Theatre.Advertisement
Put on by Preston Musical Comedy the show is directed by Peter Taylor with choreography by Lorna Cookson.
The story begins in the New England town of Eastwick, Rhode Island, the home of three unhappy divorcees and not-so-wicked witches, Alexandra, Jane and Sukie.
One stormy night, over a brew of martinis and brownies, they wish for their perfect man to appear. When he arrives in the form of Darryl Van Horneall all hell breaks loose. Quite literally.
Dana Rowe and John Dempsey’s stage musical of the movie was originally produced at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane and Prince of Wales Theatre by Cameron Mackintosh during 2000 and 2001. The show was re-written for a successful UK tour which starred Marti Pellow.
Anyone going to the show can also sample the Black Widow cocktail for free before the show or during the interval. It’s free with any other drink purchased.
The show runs until Saturday 9 May at 7.30pm. Saturday matinee is at 2.30pm.
Ticket information can be found on the Guild Hall website.
