Soap Soup Theatre & Open Attic Company present

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

£9 FULL / £7 CONC / £4.50 FAMILY CLUB


Don’t forget the magic word…

What if you uncovered the secret that your grouchy neighbour is actually a sorcerer whose house is powered entirely by magic?

And what if agreeing to feed their cat while they’re away 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 the pots and pans to stay in the cupboard?!

Taking their inspiration from Goethe’s poem, two of Bristol’s leading family theatre makers, Soap Soup Theatre (The Snow Baby, The Pixies’ Scarf) and Open Attic Company (Much Ado About Puffin, Mistletoes and Whiney), team up for the first time to make this very special 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!


Discounted tickets for Family Club members are available. Find out more about our Family Club Membership here.
