A kiwi favourite, oozing with comedy
Kiwi kids have grown up with the story of Tim and Rose’s madcap adventure through the great black forest and into Badjelly’s castle, and in 2022 children of Auckland experienced the electric, cult classic stage show Badjelly The Witch live!
From the loony world of Spike Milligan’s original tale, Tim Bray, QSM has created a Monty Pythonesque comedy that sets off in search of a beloved lost cow.
A quest full of twists and turns, with memorable characters and sausage turning spells. This bustling stage show delighted children and parents alike in a one-hour stage extravaganza.
“Mixing a 70s style with a dash of Monty Python, the creatives have clearly had plenty of fun in creating this larger-than-life version of Badjelly The Witch.”
Dione Joseph, Theatreview (2018)
“It was the best day ever watching Badjelly the Witch. My favourite part was the white mouse crawling the string and chewing and his pants fell down! “
“For many of our students it was a once in a lifetime experience going to watch Badjelly the Witch and they absolutely loved it. To see the joy on their faces watching this wonderful live show was special and something that all the teachers will hold dear to their hearts.

“The show was amazing and the costumes and set design fantastic. Our children were in suspense at the characters’ adventures and laughed out loud as the scenes lightened.
