BadJelly The Witch

The Real Theatre Company under the auspices of David Coddington, proudly present BadJelly The Witch. With two of our eights shows under our belts, we are well under way to bringing quality children’s theatre to the Hawkes Bay area.

RTC are proud to bring a combination of highly talented, seasoned and experienced performers, as well as fabulous new local talent on stage.

BadJelly is bound to tickle young and older audiences funny bones. This is an interactive play where children in the audience get to help the Tim and Rose find their lost cow and escape from the clutches of Badjelly and Dulboot. With boos and cheers it all adds to a fabulous holiday, interactive fun.

Meet and Greets

The audience get a chance to meet, mix and mingle with the characters after the show.

Bad Jelly Our First Children’s Show

BadJelly the Witch was our first show performed in Napier and in the Hawkes Bay area. We were super happy with the audience turn out and the feedback was very well received. We are one month post the show and we are still getting excellent feedback from people who’ve seen the show. With some children still singing songs and saying lines from the show.

We were also lucky enough to have an editorial review from local Newspapers which cemented the notion that the show was a hit with audiences. Roger Moroney from ‘The Hawkes Bay Today’ reviewed the show.

We would like to thank all of the children the adults and their families who acted in the show and helped the production come to fruition.
