CHAMPLAIN — Northeastern Clinton Central School District Drama Club will present the fairy tale courtroom comedy, Trial of the Wicked Witch, Friday Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 2 p.m. at the Francis “Bud” Moore Auditorium, 103 New York 276.
In this crazy courtroom comedy, the Wicked Witch has finally been caught and hauled into the Court of Once Upon a Time. Charged with casting a spell on Sleeping Beauty, attempted poisoning of Snow White, kidnapping Rapunzel, and trying to eat Hansel, the Wicked Witch is has some explaining to do.
Red Riding Hood heads up the prosecution with Evil Stepmother of Cinderella fame serving as the defense attorney. With the trial being overseen by the Fairy Godmother, a slew of the Wicked Witch’s alleged victims testify against her. Although she may have “wicked” in her name, council for the witch drums up plenty of witnesses to defend the Wicked Witch’s good character. The Trial of the Wicked Witch is a fresh, sassy take on many classic fairytales making the audience rediscover the stories they thought they knew.
