In July 2005, ARC staged one of its most ambitious musicals so far. The Witches of Eastwick was the Victorian amateur premier, and the production proved to be one of ARC’s most successful showcasing of what young talent can achieve. Read the Stage Whispers Review.
In the picturesque, conservative New England town of Eastwick, Rhode Island, where everyone knows everyone’s ‘dirty laundry’, Alex, Sukie and Jane – three beautiful, single women – conjure up images of the perfect man. When their imaginings are made flesh with the arrival of newcomer Darryl van Horne, the town and the three women will never be the same, as hell breaks loose, literally.
But when tragedy ensues and an innocent is corrupted, the three modern day witches realise the damage of Darryl’s devilish influence and become determined to send him back from wherever he came from.
It’s a saucy tale about biting into the forbidden fruit, the way life can change right before your eyes and things not being quite as they seem.
The performance season ran over two weeks and featured 6 performances:
- Friday 1st July at 8pm
- Saturday 2nd July at 8pm
- Thursday 7th July at 8pm
- Friday 8th July at 8pm
- Saturday 9th July at 2pm (matinee) & 8pm
The production played at the Banyule Theatre, Buckingham Drive, Heidelberg.
