Halloween shock as Pick Me Up Theatre cancels The Worst Witch and Young Frankenstein at Grand Opera House

Taking a tumble: Pick Me Up Theatre’s poster for the now postponed The Worst Witch

PRODUCER Robert Readman has called off Pick Me Up Theatre’s Halloween double bill of The Worst Witch and Young Frankenstein at the Grand Opera House, York, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Hopes are high, however, that he will rearrange the two production runs for early 2024 at a venue yet to be confirmed, but most likely to be the Joseph Rowntree Theatre. Watch this space.

Directed by Rosy Rowley, Emma Reeves and Luke Potter’s The Worst Witch was booked to run from October 27 to 29 with a young cast, followed by Readman’s northern premiere of Mel Brooks’s musical Young Frankenstein from October 31 to November 4.

October 26 and October 30 shows had been jettisoned already, since the initial posters (see above and below) were published.

  1. We have just had an email today. We were booked to go and see the show on Saturday afternoon with our grandsons who are coming up from London especially. It is so disappointing the boys will be devastated they are 4 and 8 years old. The half terms in London and York are different sop we are struggling to find Halloween activities that are available next week anyway so this is a real blow.
    We have been online as we wondered if it was just the matinee performance that was cancelled. We were hoping to try and get tickets for one of the other nights instead. Is it all shows as we cannot access anything on line and there is no telephone number. There has been no mention of a refund.
