November 6-22, various times
Sanctuary of Marvin United Methodist Church, 4401 Indiana Avenue
Gillian Holroyd is unusual amongst her contemporaries; she can actually perform magic feats. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Stephen Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival and partly because she is attracted to him. He falls head over heels in love with her at once and wants to marry her. As the attraction grows, she remembers that witches cannot fall in love. This 1950’s set romantic comedy revolves around the resolution of this problem. For tickets, click HERE
