While doing time in the dreaded Detention Room Three, five schoolgirls unwittingly unlock a portal to the world of Macbeth. The Witches prophesy great things for the girls, promising them their dearest wishes. When the prophecies come true, the girls are ecstatic - except for Eloise, who suspects that dabbling in the supernatural may have unfortunate consequences. She's right - the prophecies backfire, the local Paranormal Investigation Society descends on the school, and one of the girls, Sara, becomes a Witch herself to escape the real world. Can Eloise and her friends - helped by their humourless teacher, the sleazy principal and a love-struck poet - rescue Sara and close the portal once and for all?

Variable cast, with interesting opportunities for choreography of battles, dances and a killer netball game. First produced as the 2003 Darwin High School Year 10 production.
