The iconic Disney film Hocus Pocus will be presented live in concert this Autumn, just in time for Halloween at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo on October 29th.
The special one-off London show comes after sell-out debut UK showings last year, which saw the in-concert film head to five major cities.
The Hocus Pocus In-Concert showing will take place almost a year to the day after the cult favourite was made into a sequel and released as Hocus Pocus 2.
The perfect Halloween treat, 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 spooky classic film.
Hocus Pocus tells the story of three witches who are accidentally brough 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 outwitted by a boy, Max Dennison, his young sister, Dani, and his girlfriend, Allison, and aided by a boy, Thackery Binx, who had been changed into a cat for trying to interfere with the witches centuries earlier.
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).
