What is The Worst Witch musical about?

The Worst Witch stage musical tells the tale of an average girl who finds herself at the most magical place imaginable: a school for witches. No, it's not Hogwarts, but Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. The clumsy Mildren Hubble and her fellow students leave a trail of mischief and chaos behind them as they soon end up right in the frontlines of a battle that holds the key to their own future. Featuring the beloved characters from Jill Murphy's popular books, the stage adaptation adds a host of original musical numbers, music, magic, and a touch of Mildred's signature pandemonium!
