Set in the late 1950’s NYC, Bell Book and Candle centers around Gillian Holroyd, a modern-day witch. She casts a spell over an unattached publisher, Shepherd Henderson, partly to keep him away from a rival, partly because she is bored and partly because she is attracted to him. He immediately falls head over heels in love with her and soon wants to marry her. But witches, unfortunately, cannot fall in love. If they do, they lose their powers. This tiny complication leads to a number of difficulties. As truths are told and tempers flare, Gillian is surprised to discover that she has fallen in love, but is it too late?

ImageThe talented and diverse group of actors making up the Bell, Book and Candle cast is Christine Talarico from Denville as Gillian Holroyd, Pierce V. Lo from Middleville as Shep Henderson, Anthony Bentrovato from Morris Plains as Nick Holroyd, Lisa Barnett from South Orange as Aunt Queenie Holroyd and John A.C. Kennedy from Springfield as Sidney Redlitch. Director Rogers describes her production as one that is filled with “magic, mortals, love spells, and hidden agendas swirling around a New York City brownstone in 1959, where a powerful witch casts a love spell on her unsuspecting tenant. What happens when the tables turn and she finds herself falling for a mortal? You’ll have to come find out!”
