Annabelle Broom, The Unhappy Witch
by Georgetown Palace Theatre

Sep. 18 - Sep. 19 (2017)

Annabelle Broom is a non-conformist witch who would rather help than hinder. She ends up clashing with her tough witch superiors over her unconventional beliefs and nearly loses her haunting card when she decides to help instead of frighten two lost children.
