The Witcher is Getting a Musical Next Month


Look out, The Witcher fans. The series is about to see a musical rendition, if you’re in the story’s native homeland that is.

In November, The Witcher is coming to the stage in Gdynia, located in northern Poland. The musical will host over 50 performers on stage, from dancers to acrobats to actors, with an orchestra performing live music. Classic characters from the series will make appearances too, including Geralt of Rivia and his daughter Ciri. As for the name, the production is simply called Wiedzmin,¬†which was author Andrzej Sapkowski’s name for the series’ original short story collection created in 1990. (Check out some stills from the production above.)

In total, the musical will show four times per month for five months: November, January, February, March, and May. PCGamer reports the production runs for three-and-a-half hours, with the Polish 15+ rating attached to its content. There’s no English rendition currently planned, with the musical most likely staying in Poland. But The Witcher fans can dream, right?
