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.

Cindy Weisberg directs a cast of young actors from Los Altos and surrounding communities. The cast includes Katie King, Marco Casillas, Ellie Lucas, Solomon Salem, Lois Pribble, Ellie Campbell, Raya Sapiro, Kaitlyn Lu, Nayeon Kim, Amit Boiman, Jillian Analla, Libby Frey, Tamara Reed, Eliana Roy, Amelia Hutchin, Rory Hu, Danielle Gillai, Annelise Hein, Lindsay McKinley and Emalyn Vo.

Performances are slated 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets are $15-$20.
