Performance Information (November 2020)

The Great Mysto and Company have arrived in town with their travelling Magic show. But their famous trick, The Big Box of Magic, is not very magical and the show could close. Can they find Grandad Mysto the First’s hidden treasure? Can they discover his secret Magic Spell? All is revealed in this colourful and entertaining pop-up theatre show. Expect brilliant magic, wacky juggling, lots of fun and don’t say Sausages!The production has been designed to provide a Pop-Up theatre experience for schools and community venues where the audience can be in a bubble group or groups. All props and scenery are contained in one Flight Case, sound bag, scenery carry case and circus bicycle. We are delighted to be able to continue to bring Magic Carpet Theatre to your school in as Covid-safe format as possible and following current Government guidelines and we aim to give you and your pupils as much fun and normality as possible. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!

Arrival - We’d like to arrive at a time to avoid pupils and parents

Set-Up - The pop-up frame and backcloth, sound and props can be set up in almost any space in 3 - 5 minutes. The set-up can be part of the first show. Once the frame and props are set they will be left in place, if possible. if we are performing multiple performances. No electric supply is required as the sound is battery operated.

All Day visits - The scenery and props can be packed after the morning sessions and put back up for the afternoon performances. The packed props and scenery takes a footprint of approx 1m x 1m.

Performance Area - This show is very adaptable but if possible we’d like a performance space of at least 15’ x 15’ (5m x 5m). Try to keep as much space as possible between the first row of the audience and the performers.

Change over time - We suggest an approx 15 min period for change over of the audience between multiple performances. Our re-set takes about 3 minutes.

Timings - performance timings are at your discretion to fit in with your timetable arrangements.

No Close contact - the performance has no audience volunteers “on stage” and no props are passed to or required to be handled by the audience.
