The Witches of Westchester
Now Playing at Gaslight Melodrama
The famed "Witches Of Westchester", Broomhilda, Lucretia and Pam, have resided in Bakersfield since it's inception. They are jewels of the community. Some would say they are "good" witches. Only for the fact that their magic never seems to work. But, now, that magic is being put to the test. They must summon every ounce of magic they have and don't have to thwart the evil dealings of Mr. Gilliam, a Fresno native, who is hell bent on swallowing Bakersfield and turning it into, God Forbid, Fresno South!!! Join Col. Thomas Baker as he regales you with a tale as tall as a tumbleweed. Enjoy this little known slice of local history and find out if "The Witches of Westchester" have what it takes to save the day and the town from total annihilation. This brand new musical comedy melodrama was written and directed by our very own, Michael Prince.
