Covid-19 Update: We were delighted to have visited many schools with 50 performances in November and December of our new socially distanced Bubble Show - The Big Box of Magic. We'll ensure you can still enjoy a Magic Carpet Theatre visit - bringing some fun and a touch of normality to your school in 2021.
Magic Carpet Theatre
Your audiences will be entranced by our Magic Carpet Theatre shows. We bring our magical shows to YOU.
We tour exciting children’s theatre and workshops to your arts centre, leisure centre, school, festival and outdoor events throughout
the UK and overseas.
We create and present professional touring theatre for children in theatres, arts centres, schools and community venues, festivals and at outdoor events.
We are an extremely versatile and experienced touring company devising versions of their shows for venues and spaces of all types inside and outside, for audiences of all ages and needs.
Founded in 1982 we have played in fully equipped theatres, village and community halls with shows for Rural Arts Touring and Arts Council of Wales Night Out Scheme, schools, libraries, stately homes and outdoor shows.
Magic Carpet have toured throughout the UK and abroad from Brighton to Aberdeen, Aberystwyth to Skegness! We’ve performed in Switzerland and at Festivals in Singapore, Galway, Edinburgh Fringe, Norwich Children’s Theatre Festival, Blackpool’s Showzam Festival, Newcastle Comedy Festival and in Italy from Naples to Milan, Genoa, Venice, Bologna and Rome.
We are a company of professional performers and crew, working with talented writers, designers, prop builders and graphic artists on our children’s theatre productions. We are specially interested in the traditional skills of variety, Circus and puppetry including clown, slapstick and physical theatre. Many of these elements are incorporated in Magic Carpet’s productions, combining a theatrical and educational experience.
The kids love it, an interactive theatre learning experience - and fun too!
