The Best Witch, more like.

J.K. Rowling definitely owes royalties to the writers on this project; a 1986 TV movie about a school for witches. Tim Curry, Mrs. Garrett from Facts of Life, and a 12 year old Fairuza Balk do magic and save the day from something. I had a hazy recollection of a musical number with Curry as the headmaster trying to come off as the scary dominating warlock-type with a bit of cheekyness. The miracle of the internet turns these recesses of the mind in to recesses for the mind (puns, always intended). It’s a kid-friendly cousin to his role in Rocky Horror, but to be honest I never saw that musical/movie because a) it always came across as having poor production value, and b) the music never seemed that good. Speaking of poor production value, the below would be bad for 1976. Just laughable a decade later.
