Tim Bray Theatre Company presents:

Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray

Created for Ages: 5-10
⏱ Show Run Time: 50-60min

Book a School or Educational Group

Children worldwide have grown up with the story of Tim and Rose’s madcap adventure through the great black forest and into Badjelly’s castle, and this July children of Auckland can experience the electric, cult classic stage show Badjelly The Witch live! From the loony world of Spike Milligan’s original tale, Tim Bray, QSM has created a Monty Pythonesque comedy that sets off in search of a beloved lost cow. A quest full of twists and turns, with memorable characters and sausage turning spells. This bustling stage show will delight children and parents alike in a one-hour stage extravaganza.

“It’s a rollicking ride… delivers plenty of laughs for all ages. Mixing a 70s style with a dash of Monty Python, the creatives have clearly had plenty of
fun in creating this larger-than-life version of Badjelly The Witch” – Dione Joseph,

For NZSL Interpreted, Audio Described, and Sensory Relaxed performance dates and accessibility resources, head to

Costume Parade

Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Badjelly characters. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance (Note: Saturday holiday shows only).
