OmniArts presents this delightful comedy that was a hit on Broadway in 1950 starring Rex Harrison and Lili Palmer.

Gillian Holroyd is one of the few people who can actually cast spells and perform feats of supernaturalism. With the help of her familiar, a cat named Pyewacket, she casts a spell over Shepherd Henderson, played by Bret Olsen; party to keep him away from a rival and party because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her and wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love, and this minute imperfection leads to a number of hilarious difficulties.

OmniArts' production explores the concepts of contentment, desire and love, through the journey of the play's main character, Gillian Holroyd,

Gillian Holroyd is played by Jessie Porter and Shepherd Henderson is played by Bret Olsen.

The play also stars Anthony Delaney, Deirdre Barney and Danny Johnson.

The production is directed by Dustin Witte.
