The black flame candle has been lit once again!
The Sanderson Sisters are reuniting for one night only, the eve before Halloween! Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are putting their witchy wigs back on for In Search of the Sanderson Sisters: A Hocus Pocus Hulaween Takeover.
Bette Midler released the first behind-the-scenes image from the production on Instagram, saying, “Your 3 fav witches - @sarahjessicaparker @kathynajimy & ME - are returning for 1 night only on 10/30 at 8pm ET! ‘In Search of the Sanderson Sisters’ is the best thing to happen to #Halloween since Hocus Pocus + Reeses Pieces.”
Maybe she put a spell on us, but we can’t help but agree.
The special, a one-hour virtual broadcast airing on October 30 at 8 p.m. Eastern, benefits the New York Restoration Project, which seeks to create a greener, more sustainable New York City. The special will be hosted by another Halloween legend, none other than Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
The spooky stars don’t stop there. The sisters will be joined by Glenn Close, Billy Eichner, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Lambert, John Stamos, Meryl Streep, Billy Crystal, Todrick Hall, Martin Short, Sarah Silverman, Thora Birch, Doug Jones, and many more.
Not only can you buy tickets to view the virtual special for just $10, but the NYRP also has released a set of new Hocus Pocus-themed merchandise just in time for All Hallow’s Eve. You can buy Sanderson Sisters shirts, totes, tea, and even a cheese board, with all proceeds going to the NYRP.
