Description

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!

Ideal for Schools
The Wizard of Castle Magic is an ideal show for pupils of all ages and staff to enjoy in primary schools. In schools the performance lasts about 60 mins. There are versions for Reception/Nursery, KS1 and KS2. There is a Teacher's Pack available with stimulating cross-curricular activities for follow-up and preparation.

Perfect for Theatres and Arts venues
With high production values, a set that is stage filling and lights beautifully, audience interaction, intriguing theatrical illusions and an hilarious script, it is a great audience pleasing family show for all small and middle scale venues.

Great for Community venues
For Rural Arts Touring promoters and community venues Magic Carpet are fully self-contained with sound and light rig.

To complement the performance a Wizard's Workshop is available.
