Los Altos Youth Theatre presents the West Coast premiere of Roald Dahl’s “The Witches,” with shows slated Friday through March 24 at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.
The scary tale is about a brave young boy and his Norwegian grandmother, who battle against England’s child-hating witches, who are holding a conference at an English seaside hotel. The boy is turned into a mouse, but with the help of his loving grandmother, he manages to spoil the witches’ evil plot, saving England’s children from suffering the same fate.
