Porchlight Music Theatre, in association Southwark Playhouse, London presents a new original British musical The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, a new twist on the timeless poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, which also inspired the Dukas symphony memorably featured in the Disney film “Fantasia.” This enchanting musical explores the extraordinary world of a sorcerer and his rebellious daughter, as she discovers the explosive possibilities of her newfound magical powers.
Against the backdrop of the Northern Lights, a small town, named Midgard, has been pushed to the brink of collapse in a bid for progress and prosperity. To rescue Midgard from certain destruction, father and daughter must heal their relationship and work together. This gripping family-friendly story sees brooms coming to life and love blossoming anew.
