A kiwi favourite, oozing with comedy.

Children worldwide have grown up with the story of Tim and Rose’s madcap adventure through the great black forest and into Badjelly’s castle, and this July children of Auckland can experience the electric, cult classic stage show Badjelly The Witch live! From the loony world of Spike Milligan's original tale, Tim Bray, QSM has created a Monty Pythonesque comedy that sets off in search of a beloved lost cow. A quest full of twists and turns, with memorable characters and sausage turning spells. This bustling stage show will delight children and parents alike in a one-hour stage extravaganza.

"It’s a rollicking ride … delivers plenty of laughs for all ages. Mixing a 70s style with a dash of Monty Python, the creatives have clearly had plenty of fun in creating this larger-than-life version of Badjelly The Witch” – Dione Joseph, Theatreview
