The Sorcerer's Apprentice is a retelling of the ancient story of a hapless apprentice and a powerful magician. In our version, it’s Annie’s first day on the job as a sorcerer’s apprentice. She’s mesmerized by the skill and artistry of the magician and can't help but try her hand at some of the skills when he’s not looking. Sorcerer Sam, driven by ego and under pressure to rehearse a big show, doesn't see what Annie has to offer until it's almost too late. This is a charming story of two people finding a way through their strengths and weaknesses to learn how to work together.
Greg Tarlin and Kristi Heath have incorporated their unique skills into the retelling of the classic story. The Sorcerer's Apprentice is a performance filled with visual illusions, puppetry, circus arts and a ton of laughs.
