Have a spellbinding time at My Witch at TPT

LEWISTON, ME — My Witch: The Margaret Hamilton Stories, playing Nov 10, 11 and 12 at The Public Theatre, is the amazing tale of the brains, heart and courage it took for a gentle kindergarten teacher from Cleveland, Ohio to become The Wicked Witch of The West as well as one of the most famous character actresses of her time.

If there is one movie we all share, it’s The Wizard of Oz, and this delightful show takes a loving look at the woman behind the cackle and green makeup. Set in the cottage where she lived on a small island in Maine, playwright John Ahlin’s script offers the audience entertaining anecdotes of Margaret Hamilton’s life along with insightful tidbits about Hollywood and the making of The Wizard of Oz.
