Fort Worth, Texas – October 26, 2020 – Fresh from the successful run of an adaptation of Miguel Cervantes’ novel Don Quixote, the talented players at The Luckenbooth Theatre in Fort Worth Design District will be staging an original work, Witches, to celebrate the arrival of Halloween.
Written and directed by Luckenbooth’s Artistic Director Megan Hildebrand, the new play is inspired by witches in history, Shakespeare’s plays and pop culture.
“Although we enjoy doing adaptations of classics at Luckenbooth, we also have some Halloween stories of our own to tell,” said Hildebrand.
Leading the cast are Jennifer Phagan (Madame Moira), Abby Hill (Grandma Alina) and Kaylin Reynolds (Nora). They are joined by Abby Evangelisto (Witch 1) Sydni Embry (Witch 2) Aaron Lancaster (Max), Kaylah Fleming (Sara) and Fred Patterson (Mr. Binks).
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased by visiting LuckenboothTheatre.com or by emailing Luckenbooththeatre@gmail.com. The performance will be broadcast live via YouTube to ticket holders starting at 8 pm on the evening of the show. Witches will broadcast live at 8pm on October 30, October 31, November 1 and November 6-8.
One hundred percent of the money generated by ticket sales will be used to support The Luckenbooth Theatre and to further its mission of bringing live theatre to the local community.
