Double, double, toil and trouble … Kathy Najimy will speak with you for a couple.
OK … one minute, if you book the VIP option on her upcoming NJPAC appearance.
The “Hocus Pocus” star is beaming in on her broom for a live virtual conversation and Q&A this month. She’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes stories from the film over Zoom.
Najimy, 63, stars alongside Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker in the 1993 Halloween classic, which is still raking in millions at the box office (it was No. 2 last weekend), 27 years later.
The NJPAC event arrives Saturday, Oct. 24, just days before an Oct. 30 “Hocus Pocus” reunion with all three stars.
Najimy plays Mary Sanderson, Midler plays her sister Winifred Sanderson and Parker plays Sarah Sanderson in the movie. The Sandersons are witches who are brought back to life in Salem, Massachusetts after they were executed in 1693.
Each year, fans revisit the film to get in the Halloween spirit. Now, the trio is reportedly getting ready to work on “Hocus Pocus 2″ for Disney Plus.
Najimy’s NJPAC appearance comes after Jersey’s resident EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg said she was working on making “Sister Act 3” a reality. Najimy played Sister Mary Patrick opposite Goldberg’s Sister Mary Clarence in “Sister Act” and “Sister Act 2.” No word yet on whether or not Najimy will be in the sequel, but Goldberg said she was working on getting the band back together.
Najimy has also appeared in the film “Rat Race,” and the TV series “Veep,” “Younger” and “Numb3rs” and voiced Peggy Hill in “King of the Hill.”
NJPAC will host Kathy Najimy for a live virtual conversation and Q&A starting 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24. Admission $20 per screen, VIP package $130 (includes post-show private one-minute video conversation with Najimy). Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 9; njpac.org.
