Sorcerer's Apprentice

An old broom stands in the corner, a book is on the table and a young boy alone in the castle feels a tingling in his fingertips…


Can he work a spell himself? Caught in the whirl of magic, the broom dances and spins as it fetches water and more water for the cauldron.

The boy watches transfixed as a flood starts to rise. Will he be able to undo the spell before the sorcerer returns?


sorcerer In The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Garlic Theatre conjures a bewitching tale full of mystery and enchantment with their blend of physical theatre, humour and technical wizardry. Puppets, mime and a touch of real magic will leave adults and children enthralled…
