Grab your magical marching mop and join us in this enchanting new production from the team that brought you The Snow Queen, A Christmas Carol, James and the Giant Peach and Alice in Wonderland.

Harrietta Rabbit was just a normal girl from a normal family (well, as normal as families get). That is until a job offer arrives for Harrietta, in the form of a letter slid underneath the door on a cold winter’s night, she is to become the Sorcerer’s Apprentice…   

A truly magical treat for the whole family that’s not to be missed this Christmas.

Preview performance: Sat 27 Nov, 7pm

Preview performances give audiences the opportunity to be one of the first to see a new show. During previews, the show is still being developed and changes may still be made ahead of the official press night. As the show is still being developed, tickets are a little cheaper than our regular prices. We will always try to give you the best experience no matter what show you attend but if there are a few hitches on the night then we appreciate your patience and goodwill while we polish the show.

Due to the uncertainty as to when and how theatres will be able to start putting on live performances again, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone The Sorcerer's Apprentice to 2021. 

If you have booked tickets for one of the 2020 performances, the box office will automatically email you about your options (double check your junk folder if you don’t receive the email within the next week).
