‘This Christmas, whatever you do, don’t forget the magic word…!’

What if you uncovered the secret that your grouchy neighbour is actually a wizard whose house is powered entirely by magic? And what if agreeing to feed their cat while they’re away during the Christmas holidays turned into an adventure that threatens to spiral out of control? Would you know how to cope with a vacuum cleaner that has a mind of its own? And just how do you convince those presents to stay
under the tree!?!

Taking their inspiration from Goethe’s poem, two of Bristol’s leading family theatre makers, Soap Soup Theatre (The Selfish Giant, The Snow Baby, The Pixies’ Scarf) and Open Attic Company (Much Ado About Puffin, Stella & The Starshiners, Mistletoes & Whiney), team up for the first time to make this very special family Christmas show. Combining forces to share their passion for intricate puppetry, hilarious characters and sumptuous design on what could be their most magical offering yet: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice!

Join us for a thrilling story about trying to help out, running before you can walk, biting off more than you can chew and how people you know might not always be quite what they seem!
