THE WITCHES COTTAGE
A live stage spooktacular featuring a hag witch, a monster with spiky claws, an eerie hand opening a door, a chair that rocks by itself, a hovering specter, and pretty purple bubbles. The focus is witchcraft hysteria, ghost stories, misdirection, and startles. "Were there witches in Salem in 1692?" a creepy voice asks near the end. "Do they exist today, practicing black arts behind closed doors?"
