The magical and enchanting tale of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice will be told by the renowned Garlic Theatre company at Sedgeford Village Hall on January 17.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice tells the story of a castle, a broom, a book of sorcery, a boy with the tingle of magic in his fingertips and a spell that spirals out of control.

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?

The Garlic Theatre company, based in Wymondham, promises to delight with their blend of physical theatre, humour and technical wizardry.

This bewitching tale, full of mystery and enchantment, is packed full of puppets, mime and a dash of magic that will leave children and adults enthralled.

This production has been devised by Mark Pitman, who also performs, and Iklooshar Malara, with direction from Bob Pearce.

The company are also touring with other children’s productions such as There’s A Monster In My Piano, Fiddlesticks, Little Red Robin Hood, Old Mother Hubbard and Can Fish Drink Tea?

The production will take place from 5.30pm at Sedgeford Village Hall on Friday, January 17, thanks to funding from Creative Arts East.

Tickets cost £3 for children, or £5 for adults, and are available from the box office on 01485 570097.
