Mrs. McThing (Musical)
Jack Urbont and Michael Colby’s bewitching musical Mrs. McThing, with a splendid cast of New York theater pros, is slated for two benefit performances at TADA! Youth Theater on Halloween, Sunday, October 31st at 2pm and 7pm. TADA! is located at 15 West 28th Street in Manhattan. Tickets are available for $50 and $30 (Students only) online at: https://tinyurl.com/6wet5rh8.
The original musical, based on the play by Mary Chase, had its premiere at Goodspeed Opera House in 1984. The show serves up perfect Halloween entertainment for the entire family with its spooky and funny tale. Set in the late 1930s, the story of Mrs. McThing revolves around very wealthy Mrs. Howard V. Larue III and her son Howay. Howay’s encounter with Mimi, adopted daughter of the witch, Mrs. McThing, leads to a series of spells. Events that follow include an unexpected romance, a Witches’ Sabbath of goblins and ghoulies, a heist, and a hair-raising showdown with Mrs. McThing.
The production is directed by Karen Carpenter (Love, Loss and What I Wore).
“A bright, touching, raffish musical. Combines the best of Annie and Little Shop of Horrors. Could become the new Annie on Broadway. Tuneful music. Lyrics sometimes romantic, sometimes rippling with rhyming wit. Delightful.” – Malcolm L. Johnson, The Hartford Courant
“GOODSPEED offers a bewitching musical. Fantasy & fun. It makes anything seem possible.” – Betty Tyler, Bridgeport Post
“A thoroughly charming and magical musical. Lovely and inspired libretto. Absolutely right.” – Kathy O’Connell, The Middletown Press
Venue: TADA! Youth Theater
15 West 28th Street
