This is the third and latest production of live entertainment destination Kingdom of Dreams who launched the magical musical fantasy ‘Wizwits’ for children and families to celebrate their 4th anniversary here on Tuesday.

It was staged at their newly opened venue - ShowShaa Theatre, a 250-space auditorium, but an apt space to transport the audience into a wonderland.

The production values, as expected, recreate a fantasy on stage. It has been adapted for stage from ‘The Witches’, a story by British novelist and short story writer Roald Dahl.

Theatre artists Lushin Dubey and Bubbles Sabharwal, who have directed and scripted the show, have juxtaposed western elements with everyday Indian sentiments, so much so that if on the one hand we have the peppy and popular song ‘Who Let the Dog's Out’ for the witches, on the other the mother of the children in the play dons the garb of a Delhi woman - loud and stylish.

The story telling is simple and interactive with songs and dance making an appearance every now and then. There are no conflicts to create confusion and conversations are mostly in English, though Hindi too finds its way in, in bits and pieces.

It is the third in the series of stage shows produced by Kingdom of Dreams after Bollywood musicals ‘Zangoora: The Gypsy Prince’ and ‘Jhumroo - Jhoomo Nacho Gao’.

Delhi-based designer Nida Mahmood has designed the costumes for this show and it won't be wrong to say that her trademark, pop and funky play with colors, comes alive on the stage.
