Overview

Tiny Witch is a one-witch adaptation of the old and much translated folktale, Bluebeard. Part cabaret, part fantasy fiction stand-up, Tiny Witch is a queer trans allegory, a ritual exorcism and just a damn silly time.

Tiny Witch lives in a portal under your pillow. Every night they leave the 7th dimension and enter ours through this portal to battle away the nightmares that plague your subconscious with a broom they’ve made from your discarded eyelashes. Tiny Witch is very old and tired, and doesn’t have time for your nonsense. They are here to give a lecture on how to be a good Tiny Witch, as per the request of the Interdimensional Academy for Fighting Evil.

Most Tiny Witches don’t know they’re a tiny witch until they meet one. And Tiny Witch is here to help you know if you are in fact, a Tiny Witch like them. You might learn a lot from them, including how to talk to dragons, how to slay a Bluebeard in 28 days, and how to costruct a proper broom. You might even learn how to travel to the 12th dimension… If you’re good. You will definitely learn a spider war song. That is non-negotiable. If you’re really lucky, Tiny Witch might sing you a lullaby spell. And that will be very special indeed. Are you a Tiny Witch? Come to the 7th dimension and find out. 

Cannonball, produced by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre, is the first and largest independent festival hub of the Philadelphia Fringe that presents risk-taking independent artists in back-to-back performances next to delicious lounge spaces, fostering creative collisions and community conversation.
