The public performances are Nov. 16, 17, and 23 at 2 p.m. in Taylor Theatre. The fantastical production is suited for children in second grade or seven years old and above.

Created by UNCG faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduate students, the production includes inventive puppetry, shadow-work, illusion, magic, original compositions by UNCG student James Stryska, and fantastic special effects. It also includes a unique perspective on evil.

“Terrifying things can be exciting,” says director and MFA student Chad Parsons. “We will never be without fear or evil, and we must learn to overcome that. ‘The Witches’ reminds us that we need to find and embrace love despite terrifying and challenging circumstances.”

Purchase tickets online here.

Tickets are also available by phone (336.334.4392), or in person at the UNCG Theatre Box Office located at 406 Tate St., Greensboro, NC 27412. The hours of operation for the UNCG Theatre Box Office are Monday-Friday 1:00-5:00 pm.
