It's based on the traditional Sorcerer's Apprentice tale and is guaranteed to enchant audiences of 3 – 11 year olds and their families. The production is set in the Wizard's castle and the scenery is colourful and interactive with mysterious, moving portraits, sliding panels and trapdoors.
This is Magic Carpet's brand new version of their, very popular, company devised production which originally played in schools, arts venues and at Edinburgh Festival. The script is packed full of special theatrical effects, illusion and loads of audience participation. Mickey, the bungling apprentice, accidentally turns one of the audience into a frog!
