THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE “will have you under its spell”

News

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice opened at Northern Stage last night, featuring illusion design by Will Houstoun.

Young Hatty Rabbit thought she was just a normal Geordie lass, a nothing, a nobody, not destined for anything great, but she couldn’t have been more wrong. Hatty embarks on a magical adventure through the streets of Newcastle (but not as you know them) on her quest to become The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

A good vs evil caper, filled with original music by Katie Doherty, puppets, eye-popping colours and magic, as Terry Pratchett meets Labyrinth.

Bubbling with wit and charm, and a message that everyone matters. Nobody is a nobody.

★★★★★

‘A gorgeously complete piece of Christmas theatre that is bound
to have theatre-goers of all ages under its spell.’
