Hocus Pocus: The hit movie has been transformed into a live concert.

The iconic Disney film Hocus Pocus will be presented live in concert for the first time in the UK in October 2022 with a nationwide tour.

Hocus Pocus in Concert will feature a screening of the complete film with Emmy-winning composer John Debney’s musical score performed live to the classic film.

The movie tells the story of three witches who are accidentally brought back to life in Salem on Halloween night.  

Known as the Sanderson sisters, they attempt to steal the life essence from the town’s children so they can have eternal life.

They are eventually outwitted by a boy, Max Dennison, his young sister, Dani, and his girlfriend, Allison – aided by a boy, Thackery Binx, who had been changed into a cat for trying to interfere with the witches centuries earlier.

The tour will kick off at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on October 23, before visiting Manchester, Birmingham, London and finishing up at the Nottingham Royal Concert Hall on October 28.

Released on July 16, 1993 and directed by Kenny Ortega, the film stars Bette Midler (Winifred), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sarah), Kathy Najimy (Mary), Omri Katz (Max), Thora Birch (Dani), Vinessa Shaw (Allison).

Tickets will be available from Ticketmaster.co.uk.
