A Snappy Opera

What do you mean, you’ve never heard of the Itch-Witch?

You know the Tooth-Fairy, don’t you? The Itch-Witch is the Tooth-Fairy’s evil older sister. The Itch-Witch sends her horrible Nits to bite your heads and suck your blood. And the Itch-Witch is so mean she doesn’t pay you a penny!

This is the story of how some brave children decide to fight back against the Itch-Witch and her nits with the only weapon they have – combs!

Written by composer Emily Hall and author Toby Litt, The Itch-Witch is part of Mahogany Opera Group‘s nationwide landmark project Snappy Operas – a series ten new, ten-minute long, mini-operas from UK artists, created with and performed by young people aged 7-11 from across the country.

This 15-minute piece will be performed twice, with a short Q&A session with the composer between the performances.
