The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Magic in the Open Air (5-99 yrs...)
adapted by Oliver Gray
from the original by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe



performed by well-known and well-loved British open-air theatre company ILLYRIA

Left alone and bored with his chores, the sorcerer’s apprentice has a bright idea. He waves his wand and ….whoosh!… the broom magically starts to fetch water for him. But as his bath fills more and more he realizes he doesn’t know the spell to make it stop. In desperation he saws the broom in half, but meddling with magic has disastrous consequences.
