Willabella Witch's Last Spell
Short Play, Comedy / 3m, 5f
Now that Willabella Witch is 400 years old, she decides to retire from witchcraft. But a gaggle of fairy tale characters descend on her cottage and get her mixed up in their problems, making for a riotous farce that will please both young and adult audiences.
It is Willabella Witch's 400th birthday and she's retiring from the witch business and vows: no more spells. She's dying her hair, losing her whitchy wardrobe, and changing her diet, too. But her plans for retirement are interrupted when Hanzel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Snow White, the Frog Prince, Sleeping Beauty, and others show up with demands! Hansel and Gretel want more candy, Rapunzel wants her long hair back, the Frog Prince wants his spell removed, Snow White is still lost in the woods, a hypnotized Sleeping Beauty looks for a spinning wheel and a series of Princes still want to do battle with the witch. No wonder she wants to retire! Somehow the beleaguered Willabella straightens them all out and sets out on her new lifestyle with her pet Crow. This whimsical farce makes it just as enjoyable for adults and older children as it is for younger audiences.
