The production streams Fri 26 Feb - Sun 14 Mar 2021.

'The Sorcerer's Apprentice', by Richard Hough and Ben Morales Frost, directed by Charlotte Westenra ('The Wicker Husband', Watermill) explores the extraordinary world of a sorcerer and his rebellious daughter, as she discovers the explosive possibilities of her newfound magical powers.

The production streams Fri 26 Feb - Sun 14 Mar 2021.

Against the backdrop of the Northern Lights, a small town has been pushed to the brink of collapse in a bid for progress and prosperity. To rescue Midgard from certain destruction, father and daughter must heal their relationship and work together. This gripping family-friendly story sees brooms coming to life and love blossoming anew.

Acclaimed musical theatre writers Richard Hough and Ben Morales Frost have created this gender-swapped twist on the timeless poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, which also inspired the Dukas symphony that memorably featured in the Disney film 'Fantasia'.

The birth of this magical new musical has been a five-year journey for producer James Seabright.
