A magical new children’s show comes to The Epstein Theatre this February half term which is bound to have your little sorcerers under its spell…


This brand-new adaptation of the timeless tale The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will be staged at The Epstein Theatre on Wednesday, 22nd February.


The enchanting story will be brought to life by the brilliant Blunderbus Theatre Company, which has been creating magical theatrical experiences for children and their families for over 18 years, touring theatres, arts centres, schools and festivals across the UK and internationally. 

The show tells the story of Charlie Hubble, a little boy with a very big dream - he wants to be a world-class magician. So, he saves up his pocket money to buy The Big Book of Magic for Trainee Magicians.


Then he sets off to Mr Zacoor’s Toy Shop to buy his spellbook. But Mr Zacoor is no ordinary shopkeeper, he’s a real-life sorcerer! And he has a very special job for Charlie…


This delightful new show comes to life with an irresistible blend of music, puppetry and storytelling. There’s also an enchanting toy shop setting filled with all sorts of magical surprises!


Little people aged three to seven will love this funny, heartwarming tale but big people will also have lots of fun, too!


Theatre manager, Rebekah Pichilingi, said: “We know that it’s hard for parents to entertain their little tricksters over the school holidays so we have conjured the perfect half term treat with this magical show which promises lots of fun for the whole family!”


Tickets for this magical production are now on sale so book soon to avoid disappointment.
