A Comic Operetta by Laurance Tanner.
Cast:
Chorus The "5WA" Choir
The Station Orchestra
Conductor, Warwick Braithwaite.

This little Operetta will waft Listeners away into the realms of Phantasy, where Witches war with Fairy Godmothers, and Handsome Princes are turned into-but we must not disclose the plot before the Announcer has broadcast the quaint title. There is a plot, and an amusing one.
Mind Picture: A Forest-a Weird Forest that might have been modelled by Rackham. A number of Witches, wrapt in mystery, are grouped near a fallen log in grotesque attitudes. With eyes aglow with mystic fire, they sing a strange, unearthly chorus.
