Time: 5:00pm (Ground open for picnics from 4:00pm)
Production by Illyria
Open Air Theatre in Castle Kennedy Gardens
Bored of his chores, left on his own, the Sorcerer’s Apprentice has a bright idea, waves his wand and ….whoosh!… a broom magically starts to fetch water for him. But as the bath fills he realises he doesn’t know the spell to make the broom stop. In desperation he saws it in half – but this is just the start of everything spiralling out of control!
This show features a HUGE amount of water – we dare you to sit in the splash zone! There’s a spectacular set from the designer of George’s Marvellous Medicine, amazing effects from the scenic builders of The Twits, the original music by Paul Dukas (as used in Fantasia) – and eye-popping magic illusions created by the world famous illusionist Paul Daniels.
Illyria’s Theatre for Children has one principal aim: great storytelling. Brightly costumed and accompanied by live music, the shows address their target audience in an intelligent, un-patronising and entertaining way. This time they’re back with magical family fun for all ages 5+.
Marquee provided if weather unfavourable. Tea Room open for refreshments and light snacks. Picnics are welcome. Low back chairs, rugs and insect repellent recommended.
