Featuring the Sherman brothers original score ("Portobello Road", "The Age of Not Believing", "The Beautiful Briny"), Bedknobs and Broomsticks: The Magical Musical will lift the enchanting tale from screen to stage, at the very capable hands of Candice Edmunds and Jamie Harrison (the wizard behind the stage magic of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child).
