How to get tickets

Sorry, this show is over.


Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray

Share Tim and Rose’s madcap adventure through the great black forest and into Badjelly’s castle. Cheer as Tim and Rose set off to search for Lucy. Laugh with Dinglemouse, Mud-wiggle and Binkle-bonk. And then….BOOOO at Badjelly, as she captures Tim and Rose. Will she turn them into sausages? Will they escape? Who will save them?

“Children’s theatre needs to appeal to all ages. It has to be curious and filled with wonder for the wee ones, intelligent and challenging for those a tad older, mysterious and fast-paced for the teenagers – and still has to have something to appeal to all the adults for them to actually bring their children to the theatre. Badjelly the Witch fulfils all those requirements. In spades.” – Review, Dione Joseph, Theatrview


Costume Parade (Gala and School Holiday Season only)
Encourage your children to dress up as their favourite character from Badjelly the Witch for the onstage Costume parade just prior to the start of the show.

Is your child a budding actor, director, stage manager, or theatre technician?

Children are invited into the daily life of the Tim Bray Productions’ theatre company. Our tutors, cast and crew guide them in a hands-on adventure inside the theatre itself, including a ticket to the 10.30am performance of the current show. Have fun learning basic stagecraft through theatre games, quizzing actors and stage crew about the performance they have just seen, learning about the role of lighting and sound, and touring backstage with the stage manager who reveals the unseen work that makes a show successful.
